KIRKUS REVIEW

A be-all and end-all instruction book for the novice as well as the advanced sailor, this expands the material in his basic Learning to Sail (1932). He notes the changes in boats and rigging, distinguishes between ""true"" and ""apparent"" wind, shares his own wide experience. A book for those who would improve their techniques which ranges from advice on selection of craft, to information on rigging, on care of equipment, on instruction in such things as knots, splicing, navigation, tides, theory of sailing, etc. For those in small boats as well as more complicated craft.
