What is sailing? We could define it as the means to harness the wind so that it takes you across the sea, ocean, or river, to any desired destination port. You have to know and understand many things in order to conduct the voyage safely. The present popular publication will give the explanations of the fundamental elements of sailing top all newcomers to the world of sailing.

The experienced sailors, in turn, will find it useful as a readily available “cheat sheet”. People who have little to no sailing experience will benefit from this volume as they will get to know what they shall do to stay safe , to be a part of the crew team, to be comfortable, and they will also learn the basic skills. And the practicing seamen will use this book to refresh the essential working procedures and seamanship techniques prior to undertaking another voyage.

The author of the book covered literally everything, starting from the safety and comfort aspects and basics of sailing, moving to the berthing, anchoring and mooring, making a sea passage and staying on board, and to understanding the weather and handling emergencies. The technical maintenance and repair have been paid particular attention and addressed within a separate chapter; same approach was applied to the knot and splice making.
