Format: Hardcover
Good beginner reference, weather resistant plastic coated boards.
Covers basic sailboat and sailing information. Would be handy to have aboard for novice skipper to learn terms like luff, clew and foot. Book is illustrated with many clear drawings and photographs. Reviews basic sailing terminology, has section depicting most common marine Knots.
I added it to my library because "Herreshoff " was the consulting editor. Would highly recommend begining sailors first read "Royces Sailing Illustrated" ISBN:0894716964.
