Sailing will give you an interest for life. The scope is endless: pottering, cruising and racing; dinghies, keelboats and yachts; rivers, lakes and the sea. Few activities offer so much fun and so much variety. <p> This book is the perfect introduction to the sport. Using the famous RYA teaching method, it explains how the wind drives the sails, how to use the sails to drive the boat, and how to rescue the situation when things get out of hand. There are also sections on clothing and safety, launching and landing, mooring and anchoring. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with step-by-step photographs and diagrams.
