If you don’t know your Anti-foul from your Americas Cup or your binnacle from your baggywrinkles then this might well be the book for you. Unlike most nautical dictionaries it contains some of the better known races and regattas. Armed with this book next time the captain yells at you to go to the bow of the boat you will (after a suitably long pause whilst you look things up) know that he wants you to go to the pointy bit at the front.

I think this book is one of the best 'free ebooks' I've seen. Some free ones are not readable and contain many format and other errors. This one should be sold for at least a few bucks. It contains many terms I didn't know. We don't 'sail' but we have a yacht, a Boston Whaler. This is a nice book to have if you are interested in boating. It's a straight forward book of words and their meaning. You won't be dissapointed if you want to become familiar with boating terminology.
Wonderful book as long as you are familiar with nautical words.
