Sailing: Pronunciation: \ˈsā-liŋ\ the sport of handling or riding in a sailboat
Sailing is a fun sport that people of every age and gender can compete in. Many communities have sailing clubs, and some high schools and colleges offer sailboat racing as well.
The US Sailing organization has many youth programs, including "Sailing Smart", a learn-to-sail program for children ages 10-13. This organization also holds the Junior Olympics and many Junior and Youth Championships. Sailing can also be enjoyed recreationally.
MomsTeam's goal is to provide comprehensive information on sailing: advice on the equipment needed and how to buy it, a primer on the rules of the sport, and videos and advice from experts, parents, and manufacturers of sailing gear.
But to do that we are going to need your help. If you are a parent of a child who sails or has sailed, we hope you will share what you have learned with other MomsTeam parents. Please consider writing a blog, contributing an article, posting on and/or hosting a Forum, or becoming a sailing expert. If you know of someone who used to saild or coach sailing who has knowledge to share, ask him or her to join. Together we can make MomsTeam a true community of sports parents!
