No it can't, could be a compound noun though.

It is a verb used as a noun phrase. But it can be a verb.

If I say, "I am sailing"... that's a verb, no? I'm conjugating the verb "to sail".

Conjugation of the English verb sail - conjugate sail

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I wonder how many of you might use unusual turns of phrase in a non native language?

I would, and have. But if I was speaking French to a French person I wouldn't correct (incorrectly) his or her grammar. Which is the case here.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Been told repetitively by law enforcement I know their worse nightmare is "domestics". When reading this thread I am oft reminded of that. Stand by my earlier posts. In my view, crew had no business boarding that boat without doing due diligence. Afterguard had no business taking on this crew without prior due diligence. Campaign was not run to standard pre race protocol most would adhere too. Rest is a domestic disturbance best handled by professionals.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

well, Jane wrote that sailing is a verb, not a noun. I was responding. In fact it is a noun. It may also be a gerbil.
