Strictly speaking, a boat's sails serve to catch the wind, propelling the boat forward. They can be adjusted in a number of ways using things like sheets, halyards, topping lifts, cunninghams, and other lines. Sails are generally adjusted based on what direction the boat is facing relative to the wi…nd, how windy it is, and how fast you want to go. Many small boats have two sails. The larger of these sails is generally called the mainsail . It is to the rear of the mast and is attached to the boom. In the average two-person skipper/crew setup, one of the skipper's duties is to control the mainsail. This is achieved via the main sheet , which is pulled in or let out based on how close (or far from) heading upwind the boat is. In general, the closer you are to upwind, the more the sails should be pulled in. The smaller of the two sails is generally called the jib . The crew controls the jib via the jib sheets , which are adjusted in nearly the same way as the main sheet. In addition, some small sailboats are equipped to fly a spinnaker. This sail is sometimes also called a chute because it looks like a parachute when full. The spinnaker is flown only when going downwind or nearly downwind, and is controlled by both the skipper and crew. ( Full Answer )
Sailing is a sport that requires the changing of the rigging and rudder on a boat to change the direction and speed of the boat. The boat is moved by wind against the sails.
Christopher Columbus discovered America for Europeans in 1492 . He started his voyage on Aug. 3 rd 1492, leaving Palos, Spain. According to the travel journals he kept, the first island on which he landed was modern San Salvador on Monday, October 10, 1492.
Christopher Colombus died of a heart attack caused by Reiter's Syndrome (also called reactive arthritis). According to his personal diaries and notes by contemporaries, the symptoms of this illness (burning pain during urination, pain and swelling of the knees, and conjunctivitis) were clearly evide…nt in his last three years ( Full Answer )
Christopher Colombus was a Russian explorer who founded France in the year 1562. He was born on 2/4/1536, and was beheaded on 6/3/1587.
Christopher Columbus was married around the age of 27. His wife, Felipa Perestrello e Moniz, died about two years later. He also had a son (Fernando) by his mistress, Beatriz Enriquez de Arana. He married his first wife Felipa in Portugal in 1478 or 1479 and about a year later, they had a son (Dieg…o). Felipa may have died about a year later when the family lived in the Madeira Islands off Africa. Around 1485, he began a long relationship with Beatriz, although they never married, and Fernando was born in 1488. ( Full Answer )
A sail is a piece of fabric attached to a boat, causing the wind todrive the boat along.
"Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492" In 1492, Christopher Columbus in the service of Spain landed in the Dominican Republic which is near the coastline Florida. At the time he was searching for a trade route to India and upon landing mistakenly believed he had found it. It did not take long f…or the voyaging party to realize they had instead discovered a strange new land rich with gold which would later become known as North America. ( Full Answer )
Captain Edward J. Smith was the captain, but 2,208 total sailed on the titanic counting passengers and crew.
Astral navigation. By using a sextant (instrument used to measure the altitude of a celestial object) a clock and logarithms you can work out your position on the earth's surface hence 'sailing by the stars'
Christopher Colombus was an Italian explorer who wanted to prove tothe king and queen in Spain that the world was round so he went ona journey to prove it. he sailed on 3 ships santa maria, Nina, andthe Pinta.
Christopher Columbus was Catholic. Some historians believe he was a converso, a convert from Judaism.
It depends what type of sailing ship: Modern, racing dinghies have between 1 and 3 Old, battleships like those in Pirates of the Caribbean can have 15 or more! In general though, a sailing boat has the large mainsail, a smaller foresail or jib, and perhaps a large balloon-like spinnaker at the… very front. ( Full Answer )
He really was exploring for a route to the east by traveling west. He ended up exploring the Caribbean area of the western hemisphere.: Christopher Columbus, an Italian explorer traveled on many voyages. He is also mistakenly given credit for discovering North America. He took four major trips of ex…ploration between Europe and lower North America.

Although he was Italian is was the Spanish crown who supported his quest-- Queen Isabel and King Fernando of Spain. He initially petitioned the Italian, French and English crowns.
Christopher Columbus found himself around the Bahamas area. you should know that by now.! =)
No, Christopher Columbus was not Spanish, he was Italian. Queen Isabella of Spain sponsored his trips.
You need all the senses. (eg. sight,smell), a boat, a sail, some water to sail in would be good, a tiller, a rudder, and some wind would be useful too.
Yes and no.. Columbus was the first European explorer to reach the Americas, exploring the islands of the West Indies, and Central and South America. The Vikings had apparently visited islands in Canada as early as 985 AD, and Ponce de Leon named Florida in 1513. Other Spaniards may have reached ge…ographical North America even earlier.

WHY WE STILL CELEBRATE COLUMBUS DAY We celebrate Columbus Day because we as people have to remember the so very famous explorers.
Sails catch the wind which propels the boat forward 2nd Answereer says: Previous answerer has been tricked by a trick question: IN REALITY the wind foils around the the sail and PULLS the boat forward. A sail is nothing more than a vertical wing, providing LIFT. Should you ever have the pleas…ure to experience a strong puff of wind startling your becalmed craft, you will FEEL the LIFT that is provided. It's a physics thing (Aerodynamics). 3rd Answerer says: Actually, its a bit of both! When sailing "with the wind" (i.e. wind coming from straight behind the boat and hitting the sail pretty well square on) the push on the sail is transferred to the mast and boat. There's obviously a little bit of "less air pressure behind the sail" as a result, so there is some kind of "pull" going on too, but not much like this. (Air is too "runny" and will not let a significant area of low pressure form at lower speeds.) But a triangular sailed boat is pretty clever really because you don't have to sail with the wind mostly behind you - you can sail "across" the wind, and depending on the design of the sail and boat combined can get pretty close up to the point where you start to sail into the wind. Some of this force is just from the "push" from the wind on the sail, and the structure of the boom/mast transfers the push onto the frame of the boat again. But the clever bit is that the shape of the sail does indeed then form a "wing" too, just like you get on an aeroplane, and the air hitting the sail supports the shape. Air flowing around the "front" of it then moves faster than behind it so you get a lower pressure forming in front which in turn "lifts" the boat forward. (Easier to draw than put in words!) If you sail ("point up") too close the the direction the wind is coming from the sail will start to "luff" as air starts to come around the front of the sail, and pushes the front of it nearest the mast in the other way, spoiling the shape of the aerofoil wing and as a result the speed then drops off pretty sharply!

Yes - what else could they do on a long voyage. They had lights so that other ships could see them coming.
Columbus did not discover the new world because the Indians or (now called) native Americans where the first inhabitants of America or the new world.
Well Christopher Colombus didn't sail in the two smallest ships. Those were his brothers who were sailing them. Christopher Colombus sailed in the SANTA MARIA...
There are sail planes, sail boats, sail cars, and with a spaceship you could sail to the stars.
"Asymmetrical" is a description of the shape of the perimeter (outline) of the sail. It just means that it is not symmetrical.
The art and science of sailing probably began on the Nile riverwith the Phoenicians, who pre-dated the Egyptians. Local peopleused the river for transport. Noticing the wind most often blew inreverse direction of the current, it became useful to driftdownstream and spread fabric above a vessel to be… blown backupstream with little or no human effort involved. As time andtechnology progressed, sailing evolved through numerous phasesuntil today, and is still evolving. ( Full Answer )
He sailed from Spain to the Bahammas when he wanted to get to the indies for spices. =)
Battens help give the sail it's shape. By adding these 'spars' to the sail they control how the sail deforms under loading, resulting in a sail shaped more like a wing and less like a parachute. Battens also allow for a larger sail area, assuming the boom length and mast height remain constant…. With a traditional non-battened sail, the largest possible functioning sail is a triangle defined by the ends of the boom and the tip of the mast. With battens, the sail can extend past that line drawn from the back of the boom to the tip of the mast, as the battens will act like cantilevered beams, supporting the sail past the point where tension between the boom and mast can be used. As a result, all non-battened sails are triangles, and almost every decent sail has an arched trailing edge. ( Full Answer )
Because ownership and country of registry were not available from my source, I would direct you to the manufacturer, who may or may not know or be at liberty to reveal such info: Please see the related link below:
Saltwater is briny, so any ocean-going vessel is said to "sail the deep and briny".
Modern day sailing is recreational, and harnessing the power of the wind to accelerate and direct a craft in almost any direction can be stimulating and enjoyable (unless you are in Jaws 2, then it is not so much fun).
To harness the power of the wind. Quite useful if you don't have enough slaves to row you across the sea.
Coulomb's Law. "the force of attraction or repulsion between two 'point' charges is directly proportional to the product of their charges and inversely proportional to the squared of the distance between them." consider two very very very tiny particles. both have a positive char…ge. now we know that opposite charges attract each other. so, if we bring them close they will try to stick to each other. lets call charge one q1 and charge two q2. the force they experience(according to coulomb's law) will be f É q1 x q2 É=alpha, sign of proportionality f=force the force will be inverse of the distance between them(visualize this scenario) f 1/É r^2 r is the distance the final equation becomes. f=K (q1q2)/r^2 and k is the coulombs constant. it has a value which is 8.9x10^9 Nm2C^-2 that's all ..

Because he found the Island. Or at least he thought he did. Native Americans found it first and they hid so therefore, he thought that he found the land.
Columbus made it known to Europe that there was a whole new landmass located between Europe and Asia (across the Atlantic), althought this wasn't known until after his death. He also sailed in the name of Spain, despite being an Italian, allowing the Spanish to be the first Europeans to arrive. This… gave them an advantage in conquering land, in which they did more of, and were able to spread their culture and language more than other Europeans. This is why the majority of the Americas speak Spanish. By opening Europe up to this new land, Europe was now able to acquire more resources, wealth, and power. He also introduced Europeans to a new ethnic group: the Native Americans. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Colombus was born before October 31, 1451 in Genoa , part of a modern Italy.
That is the correct spelling of the Latinized proper name "Columbus", notably Christopher Columbus ( Cristoforo Colombo ), and the capital city of Ohio.
In order to find out about main attraction in Colombus one can go to the relevant website and get information. Also one can get more information from the library books about this issue. Alternatively one can consult an expert in this subject to get detailed information in this field.
Christopher Colombus is not an actor. He is in fact a historical figure who is well-known for having been a man whose voyages to what is now known as North and South America led to the colonization of those areas by Europeans.
The most potentially fatal danger was that Colombus and his crews on the three exploration ships furnished by the Spanish Crown would be victims of the Atlantic Ocean. Colombus had never attempted such a long voyage. They were in fact travelling into "uncharted waters".
The Italian sailor, Christopher Colombus, was important to the Western Hemisphere that due to the discoveries a whole new world was opened for Europe for colonization. It's important to note that although Lief Erickson is believed to be the first man to "find the New World" , nothing became of his d…iscoveries. The voyages of Colombus beginning in 1492, were significant as Europe made use of his voyages to form their own colonies in the Western Hemisphere. ( Full Answer )
The voyages of Christopher Columbus resulted in Europeans realizing that an entire western hemisphere existed. Following his voyages, European powers began to colonize this New World. The results of his voyages was one of most significant events of all time.
This cannot be answered here , you should try calling (on a phone )a bus line or station .
Yes. He was born in Genoa, which is a city in Italy, which is acountry in Europe.

Probably not. Columbus wasn't Spanish; he was born in or near Genoa, in what is now Italy. He had first proposed his voyage to the Indies to Genoese authorities, but they declined to sponsor him. However, there's a good probability that many of Columbus' Spanish crew members were Jews who were flee…ing the Spanish persecutions during the expulsion from Spain. ( Full Answer )
Asia. Specifically, he was interested in reaching India and/orChina. Incidentally, everyone even halfway educated at the time knew theworld was round, they just thought it was too large for a westerlyroute to Asia to be practical. And they were right. given the stateof sailing technology at the tim…e. Columbus' plan was based on anotion that the world was smaller than it actually is; if he hadn'tserendipitously run into the Americas less than halfway to China,he'd probably have starved (or even more likely died of thirst) inthe middle of the ocean.

The Bermuda triangle is an invention of 20th century journalistsand writers collecting a number of shipwrecks and losses ofairplanes, plus a number of what we now call 'urban myths'. The'disappearance' stories practically all date from the Thirties andForties of the 20th century, when planes were mu…ch more fragile andmuch more at the mercy of (unexpected) bad weather than today,while navigational aids were primitive by today's standards. Shipsalso were smaller than those of today, and the sometimes violentstorms in the region could not be predicted as with today'ssatellite systems. Ships and planes sometimes went down there, butthe same thing in those days happened in many other areas withunexpected very rough weather. Today, all the 'Triangle' stories have been debunked and explainedand the Bermuda area is nothing more than another region where youshould look carefully at weather predictions. Columbus sailed safely in and out of the area a couple of times,probably at first blissfully unaware of the bad weather season inthe region. And after that, he and millions of other ships throughthe centuries did the same by picking the right season for safesailing. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus embarked upon his voyages in an attempt tofind a trading route to China and the rest of the Far East,following the success of Venetian explorer Marco Polo in hisestablishing links with the region some 200 years earlier. TheSpanish Government funded Columbus's expeditions in the …belief thata regular merchant sea passage would vastly increase Spain's wealthand enable it's economy to prosper. However, Columbus sailed incompletely the wrong direction and ended up making landfall firstin The Bahamas, and later on the West Indies (although he never'discovered' the American mainland).
