Sailing is, today, one of the most popular leisure pastimes. Whether it is enjoyed as a competitive sport, as recreation, as a social activity or as an escape from the noise and turmoil of everyday life, sailing is growing rapidly in popularity, and sailing clubs and organisations are on the increase. 

The Complete Book of Sailing is primarily directed at the novice smallboat sailor but is of infinite value to the expert as well. This one-volume, highly readable 'manual' covers all the basic information needed to sail a small sailboat effectively and efficiently. 

Sailing theory, rigging, types of craft, safety measures, manoeuvring and so on; are discussed in detail. Relevant drawings, with more than 200 illustrations and photographs have been especially commissioned to explain and define the more difficult technical terms, manoeuvres, knots, riggings and the like. 

The Complete Book of Sailing makes the complexities of sailing easy to understand, with directions that are easy to follow. This is an entertaining and comprehensive guidebook of the 'Do's and Dont's' of Sailing.
