The Earth is covered by water. About seventy-one percent of Earth’s surface is covered by water, and the ocean holds about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. It does also exists in the air as water vapor, rivers and lakes, ice caps and glaciers, and in the ground as soil moisture. Bodies of water basically surround us. So it is not impossible to include water sports in our lifestyle, and sailing is just one of them.
Sailing refers to a water sport of using wind to power sails and propel the boat forward. The sport takes place in an enclosed boat rather than on board.
