9780071547994: The Blue Book of Sailing: The 22 Keys to Sailing Mastery: The 27 Keys to Sailing Mastery

Transform basic sailing skills into true mastery

No other sport is as complex or as gear- and technique-intensive as sailing. The details and nuances are vast, but beneath the surface are 22 elements, or core areas of knowledge. By understanding these principles you can attain true mastery: tie any knot, shape any sail, take the helm of any boat, no matter how large or unfamiliar.
