same sport, different languages

Updated: Dec 20, 2018

Since sailing is an international sport and as in business the main language that connects us all is English this blog will be in english language. But to make it easy for all of you to follow it we created a list with all the sailing vocabulary in worlds most important 4 (!!) languages. English, Spanish, French and German.


Download the list here.


I remember my dad giving me a list of all the sailing words in english so I could study them before going to bed. When I went overseas for my first Optimist Worlds I realized how important that was.

We want to help you to learn all the important sailing vocabulary and maybe even in more than english!

Have fun!
