What does it mean, in this context:"Georgetown’s left wing sent a corner-kick sailing out of bounds"
Thanks in advance

    Presumably, this refers to a corner kick in soccer; what went sailing is the ball. Is it the "sailing" that confuses you? Think of it as similar to "flying" in this sentence.
    WR's entry on sail:
    move with sweeping, effortless, gliding motions; "The diva swept into the room"; "Shreds of paper sailed through the air"; "The searchlights swept across the sky"
