A uniquely user-friendly introduction to sailing and a vital manual for a lifetime of enjoyment and adventure on the water

Robby Robinson's experience-based approach makes sailing more transparent and accessible than ever and sets a new standard for learn-to-sail books. The International Marine Book of Sailing's how-to text focuses on the actions sailors need to take to sail on their first afternoon (Chapter 1), and then goes on to cover everything from sail trim and seamanship to advanced racing and voyaging, introducing each new skill and technique as it becomes relevant to your progress. This progressive approach yields a book that you will value and use, whether you're a beginner or advanced sailor.
