Additional Info


Packed with more than 150 designs, the focus is on the well-known and still active class boats, yet covers over 125 years of boating. Handsomely designed, color throughout, the book is divided into three (color coded) sections: Dinghy/Keelboats, Olympic, and Yacht classes. Entries include profile drawing, photographs, basic boat specs, background info, plans availability, class contact, designer, and more. Plus there's a sail insignia guide to help you identify boats on the water, and there's an index to help you find the boats.

If you're a fan of the Olympics, this book has all 44 Olympic Class boats.

Author Vanessa Bird is a freelance writer and former Classic Boat magazine production editor, where she began this series. She sails a 1933 Scottish lugger out of Chichester Harbor, in the south of England.
