The main objective, as declared by the author of this brilliant title, was to assist the recreational sailors willing to improve their technical knowledge and understanding of the sails, so that they can later acquire the proper sails and work with them in the most intelligent manner. The material is presented in a readable way allowing the volume to be treated as a good and easy-to-read introduction.

It should not be looked at as the reference tool for the experts in sailing. Most of the casual yachters and boaters have very limited knowledge of the use of sails and their working principles. Many of them think that the design of the sails is something too difficult to be understood, but they are mistaken. What they shall do is to go through the pages of this book, and they will see that there is nothing that could not be understood.

The information contained here will be of great practical benefit to the readers and will definitely contribute in the safety of their future sailing activities, and this is the very top aim of the author. Make sure you have gone through the book before you start dealing with the sails for the first time, and you will not get disappointed with the results of your training.
