Definition of SAILING (Meaning of SAILING), a 7 Letter Word

2 dictionaries on one page, multiple citations of sailing (n)

That said I believe 'to sail' can be conjugated to 'sailing' as has been mentioned. Ain't english grand

Why not ... the Sydney - Hobart seems to have a motor boat division these days.

Don't most of them turn back after the Heads?.. Maybe what you're seeing are the "support vessels" for the go-fast racers.

One thing that jumped out at me...there was a 'large' video crew at the departure and at arrival as well as a lot of video taping during the voyage. In my direct experiences with cable and reality television, I have seen a consistent pattern of MANUFACTURED conflict.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Well, here's a question: Aside from this one, how many other cruising yachts competed in the Transpac?

This division was the "Tampax" section.

No, I was thinking of the go-fast racers .. running their engines 24 hours a day.
