Control Wheel Sailing

The steering wheel is the modern method of adjusting the angle of the rudder with respect to the creaking line, thus changing the course of the boat. It consists of a wheel that moves the rudder through pulleys and cables. It is also called simply “rudder”, which includes the rest of the steering mechanism or “cane”, referring to the classic rudder.

The first boats with a steering wheel (c.1700) worked in correspondence to the movement of the classic cane, with a movement towards the right (that corresponded to a movement of the cane towards the right) turning therefore the rudder of the ship towards port , Causing the ship to turn to port.

Finally, the direction of control of the wheel was reversed to make it more consistent with the action of the steering wheel of a motor vehicle, operating as follows (even if it is “wheel” the term “cane” is still used).

The wheel is usually connected to a mechanical, electrical or hydraulic servo system. The design of the steering wheel probably influenced the steering wheel of the current car.

In the nautical market offers a great variety of boat ropes for different uses, knowing which is the right in each function and how to protect them is essential to save money, protect your boat and improve its performance.

They receive the name of cuerdas, between the seafaring people, the ropes or ropes that are taken aboard the ship (As chascarrillo, on board the only rope is the one of the watch). Parts of a nautical cable. The parts of a corporal are the firm, the breast and the whip.

The whip, is the name with which is known to the end of a corporal, the rest of the same is known as firm. Any bow or curvature forming a cape is known as Sine, and the mooring of a cape to an object is known as a return.

The gaza is the kind of loop or circle that forms at the end of a rope, bending the whip and attaching it to the same end by means of a tie or seam. It is used to attach something to it or to encapillarla in a certain part, like a Noray.

In the past, different types of natural fibers were used in all on-board functions, such as cotton, linen, sisal, hemp, etc. They were attached to masts, sails and used for mooring. The discovery of different synthetic fibers made the natural fibers disappear on board the ships.

The type of cable is not only differentiated by its material, which we will analyze later, but also by its construction.

The Moored Yachts

A luxury yacht is that type of yacht that stands out for its performance and its length. For their careful designs, large size and high price, these units can be considered as authentic floating palaces.

During the last decades there has been an increase in the number and popularity of large luxury yachts with a tendency to gigantism in their maximum sizes.

They are particularly abundant in the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, although it is increasingly easy to find them in the most remote areas of the world. With the increasing demand for luxury yachts there has been an increase in custom yacht boatbuilding companies, merchants and shipyards specialized in the maintenance of these ships. The luxury yacht charter and yacht charter companies are located predominantly in the United States and Western Europe, but are growing in Australia, Asia and Eastern Europe. European manufacturers such as Ferretti, Benetti, Feadship, Lürssen, Oceanco, Amels, Blohm + Voss are the companies that dominate the megayacht construction market.

In Spain there are few units built, mainly made in Galician shipyards such as MetalShips & Docks or Freire Shipyard, also noteworthy firms dedicated to the maintenance and refurbishment of these units, such as Astilleros de Mallorca or Marina Barcelona 92; As well as design firms such as Nauticidesign, Oliverdesign, Acubens or Barracuda.

Sailing Sailboat

The luxury sailboats is a traditional boat equipped with canopies and rigging suitable for sailing propelled by the wind. Among these popular mast boats are the schooners, brics (brigantine type with square sails, in addition to the mesana, which has sails aligned proa-stern), frigates and brigantines.

Traditional rigging of this type of boat may include square sails and saucers with separate mast and gavia. These rigging are usually more complex than those found in modern sailing ships, which use contemporary materials such as aluminum and steel that allow them to have higher and lighter masts with less but more versatile sails.

The term mast sailboat was popularized from the second half of the twentieth century with the development of the intentional careers of tall ships’ races organized by the non-profit organization Sail Training International Of Formation Sailing).

The Sail Training International (STI) includes in the definition of tall ship sailing ship (Tall Ship) to any sailboat of more than 9.14m.) Of length. This definition may include many modern yachts, so for purposes of this article, tall masted sailboats refer only to those classified as class B or higher: classic rigged sailboats, cross rigged sailboats and all sailboats Of more than 40 meters in total length.
