Sailing(Sailing)

Sport Overview

Sailing involves racing on the water while performing various techniques. Yachts are mainly driven by aerodynamic force that is generated by wind flowing along the sails. A team consists of either one or two people depending on the event. Each team sails around buoys placed along the course a predetermined number of times and in a predetermined order, and then heads to the finish line. Each yacht’s place in the race is added to compile a final score, and the lowest scoring team wins.
