Well, it''s been said that when man first used a log to cross a waterway, he had invented boating. When he stood on his log and used the power of the wind to move himself, he had invented sailing. And when he arrived at the shore which the wind had pushed him to, he had invented cruising. I suppose that is a starting point.
