The sport of single-handed sailing or solo sailing is sailing with only one crewmember (i.e., only one person on board the vessel). The term is usually used with reference to ocean and long-distance sailing, and particularly competitive sailing.
Famous quotes containing the word sailing:
“To sunny waters some
By fatal instinct fly; where on the pool
They sportive wheel, or, sailing down the stream,
Are snatched immediate by the quick-eyed trout
Or darting salmon.”
—James Thomson (17001748)
