SAILING
First appearance in the Central American and Caribbean Games: 1962


Sailing is one of the oldest activities of civilization. However, as a sport, sailing only began being practiced around the seventeenth century, in Holland, and was immediately introduced in England by King Charles II. Events are held along paths demarcated by buoys and have two basic formats: the fleet race, in which everyone competes against everyone else, and the match race, in which two boats compete at a time. In total, there are 11 different event categories, which vary according to the type of vessel used. Competitors cannot pass each other during takeoff or disturb the sailing of an opponent, under penalty of punishment. The winner is the one who achieves the best results during the regattas of each race.
