This review is from: The Complete Day Skipper: Skippering with Confidence Right from the Start (Hardcover)
I have a much loved son in law who loves to sail. He looked a little askance at this and patiently explained that he knew how to sail... then he opened it!
No matter how much you know, no matter how often you sail... there are always new tricks to learn and more importantly things to remember that, as your experience grows you tend to forget. This book is worth its weight in gold to the beginner and the experienced sailor because it not only tells you what to do and how to do it.. it gently reminds you of the things you may think you know but often forget. ( like casting off before you actually start!!!! or just exactly when to duck that swinging boom!!)great value
