To us sailors, Sailing is more complex than just sailing a boat around. It is an incredibly multi-faceted sport that requires physical fitness, sailing technique, tactical knowledge and racing experience. It’s dynamic in the way that it encompasses mental and physical rigour. It’s challenging to be always thinking and making decisions in relation to changing conditions of wind and current and the irritating actions of your competitors. Being able to pick yourself up after a bad start, mistaking the wind shift or just being unlucky with wind gusts- that takes psychological stamina, not to mention the cognitive ability required to accurately gauge inconsistent wind shifts. Now bring in the physical aspect, and you have sailors hiking with the burn of their legs or the mastery of a roll tack in action. Ask any sailor about sailing and I can guarantee you— from the look in their eyes, their explanation and their physical animation and gesticulation— you will be able to tell we love our sport.
