Overview

Learning to Sail: The Annapolis Sailing School Guide for Young Sailors of All Ages by Diane Goodman, Ian Brodie, Diane J. Goodman

This book is about learning to sail. It follows the techniques perfected at the world-famous Annapolis Sailing School, where thousands of people just like you have learned to take tiller in hand and harness the wind. You'll learn your way around a boat—what its parts are called, what they do, and how to use them to ride the wind wherever you want to go.

Read this book, spend some time on a boat, and practice your new skills, and pretty soon you'll be a sailor, one of a select group of people who think there's nothing finer than hiking out to windward in a close-hauled dinghy—racing against friends or a neighboring sailing club, or alone and just for the fun of it.
