This book is a collection of historical articles on the subject of yachting, with information on design, construction, maintenance, repairing, sailing, and many other related aspects. Carefully selected for a modern readership, this timeless volume will be of considerable utility to anyone with a practical interest in yachting, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. The articles include: “The Complete Yachtsman—B. Heckstall-Smith and E. Du Boulay”, “Popular Mechanics Build a Boat for Pleasure or Profit – It's Easy to Build your own Boat”, and “The Badminton Magazine of Sports and Pastimes, January 1896—Mrs. Alex Tweedle”. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing.
