Sailing – A Recreation With A Long History-xxjjyy.com

Sports-and-Recreation The joys of sailing are known by many, as people have been manning vessels since the times of the Greeks and Romans. Much has changed since then, but the basic principal of feeling the open air on your face and living in the moment are still very much pliable today. The song "Sailing, Sailing The Seven Seas" is a classic children’s song that everyone knows — and while it is simple, it captures the feeling of being on the open water perfectly. Back when sailing first became prominent, there were not many regions of the world known — as a matter of fact, only a few bodies of water were known to exist. Today there are more known and easily traversed, making sailing a very much still enjoyed activity today. People often dream of sailing, sailing around the world on these massive bodies of water. Right now, there is a sixteen year old girl on a quest to sail solo around the world. Her sailboat is a bright pink 34 foot boat named Ella’s Pink Lady. She’s vying for the title of youngest person to sail solo around the world. She started her journey in Australia. Before her, the youngest person to make this trip was a 17 year old Californian boy. For the more adventurous, sailing around the world may be a lifetime goal. This is often done in races and is a huge thrill, no matter which types of vessels are being used. While in most cases, not everyone who joins in these .petitions finishes the race, the real joy lies in the time they have spent on the open water. Testing a person’s physical ability as well as dealing with the metal aspect of being alone on a boat for so long, this type of race is not for the faint of heart. Most world circumnavigation races last close to a year, as they are traversing over 40,000 miles of water and dealing with everything that Mother Nature sends their way. The racers face obstacles like hurricanes and typhoons, rouge waves, torrential rains, savage winds and sometimes no wind at all. If racing isn’t something you are up to, you can sail in luxury on a around the world cruise. While they do not technically go around the whole world, these cruises can last anywhere from 80 to 157 nights. With one exception. In 2010 one cruise line is going to offer a 335 night cruise around the world. That’s almost two months shy of a full year taking in some 242 different ports in 59 countries. With a price tag starting at $233,995 for double occupancy… if that’s not luxury, I don’t know what is. Humans have always had a fascination with the seas and that is something that is not about to stop anytime soon. These days it is possible just to enjoy the local waterways, literally sail across the world, or simply spend some time on the open water in relaxation. There are no limits as to how much you can enjoy your time on the water. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
