Now fully updated to include the very latest advice and equipment, this practical, illustrated guide provides the ideal introduction to the complex, challenging skill of sailing. It cuts through confusing terminology to offer a concise but authoritative explanation, in text and d...iagrams, of everything a beginner needs to know before getting on the water, from the parts of a boat to how the wind works on a sail. Specially commissioned full-colour photography then demonstrates the on-the-water techniques, from hoisting the sail to tacking and gybing.Once these essentials are mastered, the reader can sail any size and shape of dinghy, whether to race or cruise, single-handedly or in a team. A chapter details the types of sailing dinghy available and explains how to choose the right one. Understanding wind, weather and current, the 'rules of the road' at sea, coastguard and safety organizations around the world and dealing with minor injuries are also fully covered. Beautiful photography and clear explanations make this an ideal book for any beginner or recent newcomer to the sport, and the perfect adjunct to any training course.Read more
