Description: Whether you sail the high seas or prefer to sail in the comfort of your armchair, both weathered mariners and hardened landlubbers will appreciate this accessible and passionate presentation of sailing.
All aspects of sailing are covered in this lively account of things technical and historical from the past through to the present day.
Nothing has been overlooked. Voyage back in time to the days when the first papyrus rafts sailed the capricious Nile, through to the bold nonstop circumnavigations on giant catamarans. Hulls, rigs, and sails are unveiled, before moving on to discover the sailor’s fantastic traveling companions, the unstable natural elements from which there is no escape, the sky, the wind, and the sea. Marine weather no longer holds any secrets.
Now is the time to try out one or two maneuvers. Understand how to beat to windward, when the wind is blowing almost straight onto the bow, or how to surf the waves on a run downwind.
