Sailing for first timers


Published on

Sailing is a great activity to pursue. For one thing, there’s no comparison to the feeling you get when you feel the crisp breeze and water droplets brushing against your cheeks on a warm afternoon, or the relaxation you get when you watch the sun disappear into the water in the evening. But, while sailing is a great sport and a superb mode of recreation, first timers can find it a little difficult.

  2. 2. Sailing for first timers • Sailing is a great activity to pursue. • But, while sailing is a great sport and a superb mode of recreation, first timers can find it a little difficult. • Here are a few tips that can help you sail through your first few experiences on water…literally!
  3. 3. Consider the Weather • Learn sailing only when the weather is good and the water is calm with no tidal lashings. • Make sure the spot you choose to learn sailing is not dotted with other boats.
  4. 4. Start Small • Start by practicing on a small boat with a single sail. • Smaller boats that have only one sail are easier to handle than larger ones, especially with multiple sails.
  5. 5. Be Cautious • Other boats on water won’t be aware of your ‘Learner’ status. • You have to be cautious and alert. Steer clear of other boats and swimmers.
  6. 6. Capsize! • Weird as it may sound, experts advice that you capsize a couple of times when you are learning to sail. • There are chances that you’ll capsize during your boating adventures and it is better that you learn to react correctly to this even as you are learning to sail. • It always easier to control a capsized boat and bring it back to normal when the weather and waters are calm.
  7. 7. Follow Basic Safety Requirements • Follow the basic safety requirements like carrying a life jacket, an emergency whistle or horn with you. • Finally, practice and practice till you are perfect. • But, remember sailing is as unpredictable as the winds at the waterfront, so gain experience, trust your instincts and enjoy your day out sailing.
