The Complete Sailor
The Complete Sailor will get you up to speed quickly. There’s a lot of information to sort out to become a sailor and in this short volume has a wealth of instruction and inspiration. A very good book and well worth the price.
If you want to get started sailing this is the best $20 you could ever spend! Makes the complex simple and not the simple complex. After several text books on sailing I finally found this book. I have not found a better book to get started than this one. Enough knowledge in here to get you on your way to feeling comfortable at the helm and it is fun to read with great illustrations.
