According to the official statistics, more than four million people in America are involved in recreational sailing activities; yet the huge library of available literature on sailing leaves the majority of them high-and-dry. In fact, on one side there are purely technical guides for the pro's while on the other there are pretty simplistic publications suitable for weekend sailors having little to no interest in science. In this publication named Float Your Boat, both amateur and professional boaters will find understandable and very intelligent answers to the most important questions that may arise. Among the numerous interesting topics covered by the author, Mark Denny, who is a genuine sailing enthusiast, there are key innovations making the sailboats more efficient, how can the speed of a boat get increased, how do the sailboats travel in windy weather, and even why there are so many wrong explanations of sailing. The author traced the evolution of the sailboat throughout the history. This book will definitely serve as a very accessible and easy guide to the physics of sailing for all categories of boat owners and owners, from newcomers to professionals, and we promise that no one will be disappointed with the contents and how the material has been presented.
