This book is about learning to sail. It follows the techniques perfected at the world-famous Annapolis Sailing School, where thousands of people just like you have learned to take tiller in hand and harness the wind. You'll learn your way around a boat--what its parts are called, what they do, and how to use them to ride the wind wherever you want to go.

Read this book, spend some time on a boat, and practice your new skills, and pretty soon you'll "be" a sailor, one of a select group of people who think there's nothing finer than hiking out to windward in a close-hauled dinghy--racing against friends or a neighboring sailing club, or alone and just for the fun of it.

"For years, sailing enthusiasts have been searching for a book that will teach their kids to sail without putting them in a stupor or overwehlm them with technical jargon and details. Now comes an accessible, engaging sailing book written specifically for young people." Rhode Island Boating ".#.#.Best for the first time sailors." Sailing
