Sailing

Sailing is a water sport using a boat, sails, wind and water to increase, maintain or decrease speed.

By changing the rigging, rudder and dagger or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails in order to change the direction and speed.

This sport relies on the skill of the athlete and weather conditions.

Sailing was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1970.
