Editorial Review:

Product Description:


This is not just an instructional book---it's an insight into a sailor's approach to the sea, boats, and the ever-changing dynamic of wind on the water



"A learn-to-sail book with heart."--WoodenBoat
"A real winner...a masterful blend of straightforward text with delightful and instructive illustrations. Quite simply a great primer on sailing and the world of boats for readers of all ages."--Cruising World
"Teaches sailing with flair and poetry."--SAIL
"A great walk-through for the novice, both entertaining and thorough."--Sailing
"Sits in a class by itself. Elegantly simple, encyclopedic in scope, and a delightful reference for any novice―with lots to offer intermediate sailors, too."--Kalamazoo Gazette




If you never sailed, sailed once, or have sailed for a lifetime, this book is perfect for beginners but deep enough content for those interested in going beyond basics. Revised and expanded to include racing and GPS navigation, The Complete Sailor is not just a how-to sail book, but a book that teaches you how to become a sailor.



Inside you’ll find:
  • An all-in-one, comprehensive introduction to sailing
  • Up-to-date information on techniques and approaches offered by the changing nature of the sport
  • Exquisite pen-and-ink illustrations


Topics include: Wind Sense; Working Winds; Getting Underway; The Boat; Rigging; Sails; Under Power; Rules of the Road; Anchoring; Ropework; Marlinspike Seamanship; Emergencies; Sea and Sky; Navigation; Racing; Trailering
