A very well organized and illustrated manual of rig tuning,
This review is from: Sail and Rig Tuning (Paperback)
I found this concise guide to rig tuning extremely useful when I first read it. It is well laid out, with factual guidlines to help one understand how each different sail works, its interaction with the other sails and then instructions for its settings. Most points are accompanied by a coloured diagram.
The first chapters cover the most basic sail theory, followed by partical sail tuning instructions. The second part of the book deals with more advanced techniques such a spinnaker control and finally mast and rigging set up.
The paperback book is small and easy to carry around. Great to read on the metro in the morning !
