A sailor is an individual undertaking the task of sailing a ship or boat. Often a dangerous task due to the natural maritime hazards it could be made even more dangerous by pirates and war.

Some ships had their own soldiers in case fighting occurred between vessels, otherwise sailors themselves would be expected to defend their vessel unless the vessel surrendered.
