KIRKUS REVIEW

Essentials of seamanship for teacher-pupil, solo or classes, this covers periods from beginners to racing, navigation, etc., from ordinary seamen certificates to able seaman and mate ratings. Based on actual yacht club lessons, this starts with the selection of the boat, the basic structure and parts of boats, and ends with yacht etiquette and emergencies. In the logical order of things, there is the grounding in fundamental information, the instruction in boat handling, nautical terminology, definite do's and dont's, and an overall background for all three stages of sailing. Ready and waiting for the summer's sailors.
