Buenas tardes:

Solicito vuestra ayuda para saber que frase es más correcta:

I would be delighted to be informed if going for a sail is included in...

I would be delighted to be informed if sailing is included in...

Se trata de una carta formal y me refiero a que si navegar es una de las actividades incluidas en el programa de deportes.

Muchas gracias, un saludo,

    Is there anyone out there who might still be paying attention to this thread? I'd actually like to know the opposite of the original question: how would you say in Spanish to go for a sail, as in the example above (Would you like to go for a sail?).

    I'm thinking navegar isn't going to do it; "go for a sail" implies a casual outing, an afternoon's activity with no particular destination. For instance, I live near a lake where people take their sailboats out in the summertime, and just sail up and down the lake for fun. This would be going for a sail. Is there any phrase that gets this particular idea across? Could you say ir a navegar in this context and get this idea across?
