    Seasickness - Does MotionEaze Work?
    Saturday October 30, 2010 I was talking to a sailing friend today who related a story about his wife's seasickness. Seems it had been so bad in recent years that she lost all interest in sailing, and they were about to sell their boat. Then she tried MotionEaze , a liquid product of natural substances that is rubbed behind the ear. He said it worked very well for her - and also for a sailing guest who had begun feeling very queasy. Having done done research and writing about

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search For other uses, see Sailing (disambiguation) Wooden Gaff-rigged Cutter Sailing is the art of controlling a boat with large (usually fabric) foils called sails. By changing the rigging rudder , and sometimes the keel or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails in order to change the direction and speed of a boat. Mastery of the skill requires experience in varying wind and sea conditions , as well as knowledge concerning sailboats themselves. While there are still some places in the world where sail-powered passenger, fishing and trading vessels are used, these craft have become rarer as outboard and modified car engines have become available even in the poorest and most remote areas. In most countries people enjoy sailing as a recreational activity. Recreational sailing or yachting can be divided into racing and cruising . Cruising includes extended trips, short trips within sight of land , and daysailing

      What is a burgee? More Sailing

        Small pennant used to determine wind direction . The burgee is placed atop the mast to determine wind direction. It has a metal rod through it and works like a wind vane.
      What is the most efficient use of the sails when sailing downwind? More Sailing

        Wing and wing . In sailing wing and wing, the main sail is let all the way out, and the jib is allowed to catch the wind on the other side of the boat. This allows for optimum wind on both sails, and the vessel is pushed forward.
      A tack is when the boat turns its bow through the wind, and the weather side changes. What is the maneuver called, when the boat is turned and the wind crosses the stern? More Sailing

        . The Jibe is not used as often as the tack because it can be a violent move. It is mainly used in racing or to evade an obstacle. In high winds, it can be tough and should only be attempted by proficient sailors.
