Why do we love sailing? Is it because of or despite rainy days with no wind, or windy days when we feel like heroes just because we made it back to shore? Or is it because of or despite the complexity of our sport?
Whatever the reason, the pace of modern life brings a constant struggle to accommodate time for traditional sports like sailing that require lots of time and logistics, plus the need for a crew and favorable weather conditions.
So why wouldn’t we exploit the technology that we already carry in our pockets and start enjoying our favorite sport on our own terms? Yes, the scoreboard is online and some competitors will never meet in person, but the wind, the waves and the almost magical machines we call sailboats are still very much part of this game. The difference is that in this one you can compete on your own terms and time.
