Sailing is without doubt the most skilful and exciting of all water sports. From the simple but exhilarating sailboard skimming over the waters surface, the excitement and stimulation of driving a big yacht through heavy seas or perhaps the thrills and spills of a small centre boarder, sailing has something to offer everyone. The excitement comes from the fact that the only means of propulsion is the elements themselves, with the skill of the sailor harnessing and using them.
Such skills are not quickly gained, but learning to sail properly is essential. This new 464 page book by Jeff Toghill explains the art of sailing right from the basics through to the complexities of navigation and skilled seamanship. Starting with All About Sailing, the author follows with chapters on the Art of Sailing, Seamanship, Weather, Navigation, Safety, Racing, Cruising, Sailboarding, Maintenance and finally a Glossary of sailing terms and expressions.
Chapter by chapter, and including over 300 photographs and detailed diagrams, ANZ Sailing and Boating instructs the beginner and also teaches the old hand a thing or two.
