    • SAILINGRAMON PAGÀ, MARC SANSALONI, ALEIX VENTURA , JÚLIA ALEGRE I ALBERT MONTESÓ.
    • Here are the SIX BASIC KNOTSthat every sailor should know how to tie: ● Overhand or thumb knot, is the simplest knot. It is used to stop the end of a rope from running ● Overhand or through a block or up the mast. thumb knot: ● The square knot is the best ● Square knot: known sailors knot. It is really just two overhand knots. It is useful for joining small ropes together, tying sail covers, reefing, lashing, and for tying in battens.
    • Other knots:● Figure eight: ● A figure eight knot is very quick and easy to tie. It is used like the overhand knot, as a stopper knot in the end of a line, or sheet, to prevent ropes from escaping.To tie a figure-8, start with an underhand loop by crossing the running end behind the standing part.
    • ● Form a small loop leaving● Bowline: enough rope for the desired loop size. ● Form a loop in the working end of the rope. Place it over Clove hitch: the post.
    • Types of Sailboats:The Modern Sloop: The most common type of small to midsizesailboat is the sloop. The rig is one mast and two sails. The main sailis tall and triangular.
    • Racing Sloop:Here’s another exampleof a sloop with aBermuda rig. This is thesailboat Puma in the2009. The sails aremuch bigger than foundon sailboats, but thegeneral rig is the same.
    • Fractional Sloop Rig:Here’s a small boat.This is still a Bermudarig, but the main sail isproportionally larger andthe rig smaller, for easeof handling andmaximum power.
    • Cat Rig:This Sailboat has gotonly one sail, while asloop always has twosails. Note that the mastis positioned very farforward, almost at thebow, making room for avery long-footedmainsail.
    • Cat-Rigged Racing Dinghy:Here’s another cat rig,which works well onsmall racing dinghieslike this Laser. With asmall boat and onesailor, a cat rig has theadvantages of beingsimple to trim and verymaneuverable whenracing.
    • Yawl:A yawl is very similar toa ketch. Themizzenmast is usuallysmaller and set fartheraft, behind the rudderpost, while in a ketchthe mizzenmast isforward of the rudderpost.
    • Schooner:A typical schooner alsohas two masts, but themasts are positionedmore forward in theboat. Unlike in a ketchor yawl, the forwardmast is smaller than theaft mast.
