There are different kinds of sailing that you can have that also depend on the type of boat that you have or will use. There are people who do not want to worry about doing the sailing themselves but they just want to relax and do what they want to do while sailing like sunbathing. It is good because they can just ride a tour in one of the catamaran types of boat and feel comfortable with it as it is safer and faster to use when going somewhere.
In the other types of boats, there is also the motor yacht that could be used by people who already know how to drive one. It could cause an accident if you accidentally hit someone using the yacht when it travels very fast. There are also the sailing yachts that is also propelled using the sails partly or entirely just like the motor yacht. There are also the jet skis and jet kayaks that are fast in nature and person using it are limited.
If you have not tried the jet kayaks and you have a chance to try in your trvael it is great to try as it is a new experience so it is used mainly for recreational purposes. There are also the houseboats and inflatables types of boats. they have there own purpose and houseboats are usually stationary so they no dot need a motor. As mentioned it is mainly for pleasure and so just enjoy your time in the sea.
