As mentioned, it is only applicable for yachts, but it is totally practical and well thought through.
I would like to have had more of them both, Bill Anderson and Tom Cunliffe,
but the book doesn't need that.
Lovely to read.
After 50 years of sailing, I nearly started before I was born :-) ,
this is the most concentrated book about sailing I met.
If I onlycould to bring one book onboard, this would be it.
It seems impossible, but for 'everyone' this little book, BTW it's not so little, just thin, contains what every sailor should know.
If you know everything in the book and can handle it, you can sail where ever you want!
About the bike, I as Tom happens to like bikes, especially vintage, and he has recently managed to get a BSA Rocket from 1957.
All sailors loves the wind and that goes for all bikers too!
Without wind you would not go out sailing, and it's the feel for the wind that makes you go for a ride with your bike!
Just buy it, you re-read it many times!
