Small Boat Sailing on Sea and River


Originally published London 1931, this is a well illustrated book that will prove invaluable to the class of yachtsmen for whom it is intended, with much information that will still be found practical and relevant to the modern reader. Contents include: The Selection of a Boat; The Effect of the Wind on a Boat; Splices, Knots, and Tackles; The Small Open Sailing Boat; Open Sailing Boats with Boom-Sails, and Half Decked Boat; Decked Boats; Seamanship; Open Boat Sailing; The Cruising Yacht; The Art of Coasting; Description of a Voyage; Regulations Affecting Yachtsmen; Two Cruises on Lateen-Rigged Craft; Etc. Many of these earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
