There are a lot of things to do in the open world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Here, players are all treated to a massive content of features that would allow them to explore and enjoy Breath of the Wild. However, there are times that tricks are needed to be able to do some of these features, so this article is made to act as a guide for players who specifically want to go sailing in the game.

Rafts, Sailing And More

According to Gosu Noob, rafts are a great way to get to distant islands without any problems or setbacks at hand. Although a player could just start swimming to get to where they want, it is too dangerous as they could run out of stamina, which would drown Link. So if players find an abandoned raft, it is better to just use it in order to get to any given location that was previously impossible to get to.

How To Go Sailing

In an article by USGamer, it is said that players sometimes find rafts in the map but when they board it, nothing happens. However, in Breath of the Wild and in the real world, rafts need wind to be able to move. However, players don't need to worry about using abilities or any other powers to move a raft as the answer is just simple.

For players to be able to move a raft in Breath of the Wild, they would just need to have a Korok Leaf. Fortunately, the game always provides the players a Korok Leaf near any raft. These can always be found on a nearby treasure chest or at a nearby area. However, players could always cut down Korok trees to get its leaves, although it may prove to be time-consuming and a waste of a weapon's durability. So if ever they decide to go for this option, having a lot of weapons are necessary or they need to have a woodcutter's axe at hand.

Once players obtain the Korok Leaf, it will be placed in their inventory specifically in the weapons tab. Players need to equip the Korok Leaf and then board the raft. To get the raft moving, all the player needs to do is to hit the Korok Leaf in the direction they want to go. It is better to use regular attacks to swing the Korok Leaf as not only would it help preserve stamina, it will also continually give the raft momentum. However, if the player does a heavy attack, this would create a bigger gust of the wind and they would risk losing momentum as there is a pause in between heavy attacks.

Sailing is typically easy and less dangerous than traveling on the road, however a word of caution to any player who is going sailing. Staying in a single position in the raft while sailing is dangerous, as there are many creatures lurking in the water that would attempt to throw Link off the raft. So when sailing, it is better to move around at a time.
