Even today, sailing is one of the world’s three main methods of transportation. For thousands of years, sailing connects continents, cultures and people.
At first, people used paddles to steer the boats, then the Vikings came along and began harvesting the power of the wind with sails. The theory of sailing has hardly changed since. We rely on and pass on knowledge that exists for hundreds of years.
Sailing is international and the theory of sailing is the same everywhere in the world. Sailing gives us is the ability to analyze the weather conditions (wind, waves and current) and use this data to get the boat from one point to another, whether it is sailing along the shore or in the open sea.
What’s beautiful about sailing is that the knowledge acquired on a small boat forms the base and can be applied to all types of sailing vessels, which means everyone has to start small.
