|D O W N L O A D|
This is a good textbook of sailing compiled by the recognized YCC expert. The content of the course opens with the introduction explaining the fundamental sailing principles including description of the elementary maneuvers and some of the nautical terminology commonly used in sailing.
The second chapter coming under Safety in Navigation title contains the basic safety rules and also touches the possible accidents, while the third chapter is solely devoted to the maneuvers - the readers will have all basic information on them and this will be just enough for a good start.
The next chapter covers such important aspects of naval architecture as sail stability and trim. The remaining parts of the course are dealing with the techniques and effects of the trim, making the basic knots, some basic information on dinghy boats etc. There is a concise yet comprehensive sailing dictionary included.
There is also a very interesting closing chapter giving ten so-called golden rules to be followed by all YCC dinghy sailors. taking into account that the information presented in the pages of this course is basic and presented in a very easy-to-understand way, we would highly recommend this course to all newcomers to the world of sailing.
