Sailboat is a ship that uses wind to advance. It is an ancient water transportation tool after boat and raft. It has a history of more than 5000 years. According to the number of masts, it can be divided into sloop, ketch and multi mast sailboats; according to the ship type, it can be divided into flat bottomed sailboats and pointed bottomed sailboats; according to the bow type, it can be divided into wide head sailboats, narrow head sailboats and pointed head sailboats.
According to the common people's idea, downwind driving should be the most normal way of driving. The wind comes from the rear and pushes the ship forward. It's just like people say "smooth sailing". But for the entry-level sailors of small sailboats, downwind is quite difficult. The problem is that when downwind comes, the direction of wind is parallel to the ship, and there is no lateral pressure for balance. It's easy to lose balance When a ship capsizes, it takes more than 16 hours to get used to it.
