Product Description

by John Driscoll

Sailing will give you an interest for life. The scope is endless: pottering, cruising and racing; dinghies, keelboats and yachts; rivers, lakes and the sea. This book is the perfect introduction to the sport.

You will learn how the wind drives sails, how to use the sails to drive the boat, and how to rescue the situation when things get out of hand! There are also sections covering clothing and safety, launching and landing, and mooring and anchoring. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with step-by-step photographs and diagrams, making learning clear, simple and enjoyable.
