Sailing is the skillful art of controlling the motion of a sailing ship or sailboat, across a body of water. Sailing vessels are propelled by the force of the wind on sails. Today, for most people, sailing is recreation, an activity pursued for the joy of being on the water and pursuing the mastery of skills needed to maneuver a sailboat in varying sea and wind conditions. Recreational sailing can be further divided into Racing, Cruising and "Daysailing" or Dinghy sailing.

Throughout history sailing has been instrumental in the development of civilization. The earliest representation of a ship under sail appears on an Egyptian vase from about 3500 BC.


NOTE: Research to various web sites that illustrate Panay and Guimaras islands was used as reference for information provided in this site.

"Mabuhay" is a Filipino verb in the form of a command: "LIVE" it is also a wish: "MAY YOU LIVE!" whosoever says it wishes upon you the great gift of a long and full life. It is both a blessing and a lusty cheer. "MABUHAY"(ma-boo-high) is such a large word that it lends itself to a wide number of secondary uses: welcome, congratulations,thanks, god-speed, hello, good luck, cheers, prosit, sante, viva, kambei, aloha and many other expressions of goodwill
