Sloop Sailing

Admittedly an unusual sounding name, sloops have been around since the eighteenth century and actually refers to a range of different ships, such as the •sloop-of-warê used by the British Navy or the more common, Bermuda sloops used in modern sailing. The main design of the ship was to travel on long voyages although the voyage was often slow. The Bermuda sloops are one-masted smaller boats that are perfect for modern yachters because of their speed and manoeuvrability and their ability for upwind sailing. Nowadays it is the most popular contemporary boat available..
