Sailing is the art of controlling a vessel controlled by sails. This is performed by adjusting the rigging and rudder of a vessel, so you can harness the power of the wind. Sailboats are one of the oldest types of seafaring vessels, and remain one of the most common types.
Nowadays sailing is mostly used for sporting and recreational purposes and not for travelling and transporting goods for long distances (e.g. merchant ships).
