SAILING - A BEGINNER'S MANUAL.
By John Driscoll. Paperback, 185mm x 244mm, 48 pages, monochrome photographs and drawings.
Sailing will give you an interest for life. The scope is endless: pottering, cruising and racing; dinghies, keelboat and yachts; rivers, lakes and sea. Few activities offer so much fun and so much variety.
This book is the perfect introduction to the sport. Using the famous RYA teaching method, it explains how the wind drives the sails, how to use the sails to drive the boat, and how to rescue the situation when things get out of hand. There are also sections on clothing and safety, launching and landing, mooring and anchoring. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with step-by-step photographs and diagrams.

SAILING WITH PENNY WHITING.
By Penny Whiting. Pbk, 180mm x 240mm, 136 pages, full colour photographs.
This is the new edition of the book by New Zealandís leading sailing school instructor and popular television yachting commentator. It shows in her own style how to learn to sail a keel boat yacht. Covering every aspect of sailing, from the rig and parts of the boat, hoisting sails, running, gybing, going about, reefing, tying knots, and handling a spinnaker, this is perhaps one of the clearest, most user-friendly books for those going afloat for the first time. Lots of clear sequential photographs throughout.
New to this edition are a short section for Optimist sailors, and the importing of much of her book, The Boat Code. This focuses on rules of the road, buoyage and suchlike. There is an improvement in quality of the pictures, and many of the keeler sailing photographs feature a vaguely recognisable young, lithe, blond sailor - I think these may be from the original edition! (sorry Penny!)
Sailing with Penny Whiting is also available in DVD format.
