Sailing is enjoyed mostly as recreation or sport. Beginners at sailing are recommended to trail under instructors and experienced sailors. Two ideal devices to have when sailing are barometers and anemometers. Barometers measure the current air pressure. The higher the pressure the better the weather is for sailing. An anemometer measures the speed of the wind. Light or medium wind is ideal for sailing. Always have a radio with you and check the weather frequently. Sailing is enjoyable and can interact with other activities such as fishing, diving, and snorkeling.
