RYA Dinghy Techniques

on 5 August 2013
I think had I been new to sailing the information in this book is a little tricky to understand, though as someone who has already learned to sail (I have had the opportunity to sail a small variety of boats, and can just about keep them upright, weather permitting) this book was excellent at explaining why certain things happened to the boat, and how to counter and control the boat better when they occur.
The book starts basic, and looks at rigging the dinghy, but quickly through the chapters shows how to manage the dinghy dependant on whether it is a single hander, Crewed, novice, or experienced. There is also a handy Glossary at the back which translates the technical language into the more basic, familiar to those who have just completed an RYA course.
This is an excellent book to accompany those relatively new to sailing and looking to improve upon technique, and understand why certain things happen at particular points.
Also a very handy book to those wishing to be a dinghy instructor and looking to advise novice sailors, or understand some of the areas which a competent sailor might take for granted.

A superb book for novices and moderately experienced alike. Simple to follow, easily remembered and 'flows' brilliantly from start to finish.
