Description

Sailing is fun for everyone. No matter where you are or how old you are, anyone can get involved. There are only two things you need to get afloat - a kitbag full of enthusiasm, and this book. In this ultimate beginner's guide, yachtsman and writer Simon Jollands takes the helm to show newcomers of any age that sailing is easier than people sometimes think.

He quickly covers how to get afloat before exploring what you can do when you are on board. You can learn how to steer the boat, understand how sails work, and how to hoist them, find out how to use an anchor and how to get free again! Learn how to tie useful knots, know what to do if there's a man overboard, discover the curious intricacies of how toilets work on a boat... All the simple stuff is covered too, from what clothes to wear to getting on board safely. With a glossary of boating terms, and clear colour diagrams and photos throughout, this book makes everything easy to understand, so even somebody who has never stepped foot on a boat before can quickly learn the ropes.
