“A useful book with step-by-step coverage of all the essentials.” Yachting Monthly
“This book is a simple, but brilliant concept. The ability to read the details of learning to sail, coupled with free-to-view videos showing in an easy and simple way the basics of dinghy sailing. The diagrams are clear and simple, and the illustrations are stills from the accompanying videos on Fernhurst Books' website. You can almost feel the wind and spray in some of the clearly demonstrated basics. Tim Hore does not assume you have the boat on the water waiting for you, but also instructs in both pontoon and beach launching. Even if you have a group of good friends helping you to learn to sail, this book will help immensely.” Little Ship Club
