Publisher's Summary

Sailing is an international sport that offers many rewards. Imagine white sails billowing against a clear sky, the brisk feel of the breeze on your face, and the gentle motions of the boat as it cleanly slices through the water. While sailing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, it also requires you to be an active participant more than almost any other type of boating.

When you learn how to sail, you will not only become intimately familiar with all aspects of your boat, but also how your boat relates to its environment in terms of everything from the wind to the weather. Sailing can be terrific exercise that is both invigorating and relaxing.

Difficult to grasp in Audio format

I am not sure if I would have preferred this book had I read it but it was very dry and extremely hard to follow. The narrator made the book even dryer than it was and did not provide the kinds of pauses and intonations that might have made the instructional aspect easier to follow / grasp.

knowledge the wind could blow away

mildly informative and the even less applicable. if you really want to learn how to sail this is not your book period this lightly skins over the concept of sailing with some simple aspects explained.

Always good o hear the basics again.

Simple concepts like stated in this makes a difference when on the water.

Winds, waves , high grounds and other ships need attention when on water.
