Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Written by the editor of SAIL magazine, whose extensive experience includes competition in long-distance ocean races, Sailpower: Theory and Techniques for Cruising Sailors is a thoroughly detailed instructional to effectively operating a sailboat. Color photographs illustrate the how-to, step-by-step advice for setting up the rig, controlling the mainsail, trimming the mainsail and headsail, handling reefing systems, coping with strong winds, troubleshooting, and much more. Presented in a friendly, accessible tone as accessible to lay readers as to seasoned sailors, Sailpower is a superb guide to honing one's sailing skills and highly recommended for anyone considering the hobby or simply wanting to know more about what it is like.
