The sport and hobby of Sailing is certainly an activity many people will take part in. No matter where in the world you may live, as long as there is a body or water nearby - the sea or a grand lake - you can venture out on the blue waters and enjoy sailing.

For you, Share us your opinions on sailing. Are you sailing just for a Hobby or just for fun?

How can you differentiate this two? ;-)

Well hobbies are for fum right...water is so inviting that each time i look at it i just crave for measuring its depth from the deepest corners..i wish i could live under waters and enjoy my sanity out there into the blue.

Well sailing is a bit different mate,
You actually live over the water and feel the waves thrashing up your face which is far more exciting than living under waters.

sailing to me is a (hobby) but really its a obsession as it is always on my mind to be on the water either in my yacht or even in the dinghy for a bit checking mine and other peoples boats ,I cant explain why but all I know is I cannot do without my boat and long for the better weather to be off again most night`s for a couple of hour`s and weekend`s when work doesn't force to be away from the bost
