Fight off fatigue and enhance recovery
Sailing requires maximum physical and mental focus for long lengths of time, whilst simultaneously requiring sailors to perform sudden, explosive and powerful movements at unpredictable intervals throughout the race. Although often considered a very technical sport, sailing requires both powerful core body strength and competent cardiovascular traits.
