If you've recently started sailing you may know about the Points of Sailing - but what are they? The points of sailing are the different directions or angles that you can sail in, relative to the wind. And, when learning to sail, it's handy to know all of them by name, and the associated sail and boat settings, in order to sail efficiently.

Learning the points of sailing is vital if you want to be able to do more advanced manoeuvres like coming alongside a pontoon or man overboard recovery, as you'll need to follow a set of different positions in order to complete the tasks under control.
