This book is a collection of classic articles on the subject of yachting, with detailed information on selecting a boat, sailing in bad weather, sailing for children and beginners, maintaining a boat, and many other related aspects. Carefully selected for a modern readership, these articles will be of considerable utility to novice sailors, and would make for fantastic additions to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “How to Sail”, “Junior Skipper's Handbook – A Guide to Sailing for Boys and Girls”, “Learning to Sail”, “Outing Library of Sport – Boat Sailing in Fair Weather and Foul”, “Sailing”, “Sailing – A Piratical Handbook on the Equipment, Handling and Up-keep of Open, Half-Decked and Small-Decked Boats”, and more. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing.
