Whether you own a rowboat, a canoe, or motorboat, it can be made to sail. Even the most ancient records of boats show that sailing was an art that went hand in hand with that of boatbuildling. The first of man’s craft carried sails as an auxiliary to their oars and used them only when the wind blew in the direction in which the skipper wished to go. Galley slaves chained to their oars in the ancient Roman galleys paid homage to Boreas, the god of winds, because his aid meant a rest from their weary labors.
