Star guide, especially for beginnersReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 February 2017
Bought this for my son who bought his first sailing boat last year. With the information in this book he now feels a lot more confident than he did and says he will keep this on board to refer to when he's out on the boat. A book you can dip into for whatever info you need when you need it. Star buy as far as I'm concerned if it helps him to enjoy his new hobby safely.

Amazing compete sailing bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 October 2013
This book truly contains a vast store of knowledge on just about everything you would need for sailing. Originally I bought a few of the RYA books, thinking they would be comprehensive but I found them lacking in all the areas which this book so successfully delivers. This book goes in detail on tacking and gybing, reeding your boat, different maneuvers and all about the complete construction of various boat types. It splits sailing chapters into both dinghy and non-dinghy sections, This is everything I wanted in a sailing book and more.

I haven't read it yet but seems to be what I was looking for, took a tad longer to arrive than what I expected but I wasn't in the rush anyway.
