"It's a cross between football, ballet and chess."

I just returned to the NYC area after a weekend in Los Angeles...greeted by the fading Nor'easter and the chaos left in it's path. Scanning the news for something to write about tonight I came across this article in the Monterey County Herald concerning competitive collegiate sailing. Monterey is somewhat is north of LA so no direct connection there...though being in California always makes me envious of their year-round boating season. A lot of the article concerns the local scene but there were a few good quotes in there...the best being the title of this post.

"I've played a number of sports but I can honestly say this: Sailing is the most difficult one I've participated in," said Herring. "It's a cross between football, ballet and chess."

Sailing is the art of controlling a sailing vessel. By adjusting the rigging, rudder and dagger or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails (main and/or jib) in order to change the direction and speed of a boat. Mastery of the skill requires experience in varying wind and sea conditions, sportsbook, as well as knowledge concerning sailboats. Today most people enjoy sailing as a recreational activity. Recreational sailing can be further divided into racing, cruising and "daysailing" or dinghy sailing. Throughout history sailing has been instrumental in the development of civilization. The earliest representation of a ship under sail appears on an Egyptian vase from about 3500 BC. http://www.enterbet.com
