Description

This is a soup-to-nuts introduction to small, economical sailing craft. Trailer sailors - the smallest, most economical sailboats with sleeping accommodations - are a popular platform for learning the basics of sailing and are often considered to be the entry level to cruising under sail. Author, Brian Gilbert shows how trailer sailors can be the ideal craft for a lifetime of enjoyment, including serious, long-distance cruising. This book covers all the bases, including how to inspect, buy, and equip a boat; how to trailer, sail, navigate, and cruise in small boats; how to use communications and navigation equipment; and more.
