Some Health Benefits
Muscle strength/Endurance. The many activities involved in sailing like pulling and hoisting of sails to maneuver a boat or a yacht adds muscle strength to your shoulders and back.
Cardiovascular Fitness. Sprts like tennis and baseball can reduce the risk of hypertension, obesity and other heart illness. Sailing, like these intense sports can also improve your cardiovascular health due to the large amounts of oxygen uptake the activity requires.
Relaxation. The swooshing and splashing of water, the rhythmic movement of the yacht and the sound of the wind in the sails can all affect brainwave patterns. This in turn relaxes and soothes a busy and highly-stressed mind.
Agility. The various tasks associated with the sailing also helps improve your flexibility and agility. Activities like pulling lines or hoisting sails can significantly improve your hand and eye coordination skills as well as your motors skills.
Concentration. Because many people today are chronic multi-tasters, they should develop a deep sense of concentration. With the ultimate goal of staying safe while on board, sailing enhances a person's ability to focus even with multiple tasks at hand.
Communication. To effectively control the boat, the captain and his crew must act as a unified unit. To do this, they need to learn hoe to communicate effectively especially through non-verbal means. Everyone on board has a crucial role to play in order to keep the boat afloat.
