    "Helpful introductory guide for sailing/cruising"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sailboat Cruising (AUDIOTOPICS) to be better than the print version?

    I listened to Sailboat Cruising just prior to spending 3 days cruising on a 34' Benneteau with my family. They've been sailing for years, but I have only had minimal experience and was worried that I'd be useless as a crew member. This audio really helped me to not feel like a complete idiot going aboard. I was able to formulate some reasonably intelligent questions, and understood some of the terms and concepts without needing explanation. There's always more to learn, but this program provided a lot of good fundamental information, both conceptual and hands-on. I also like that it is narrated in a friendly and engaging style, with ample real-life examples and situations. Very helpful.

    "Clear and concise delivery of sailing essentials"
    Where does Sailboat Cruising (AUDIOTOPICS) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best delivery of sailing essentials from the basics to insights gained from years of experience. I recommend Sailboat Cruising for sailing newcomers to develop a strong foundation of sailing essentials to experienced sailors as a review before their next sailing trip. This audio book is a great addition to your sailing reference library.
