Although there exists a range of books on the topic of sailing, not many are devoted chiefly to sailing dinghies, and fewer still that are designed for the novice. With step-by-step instructions and simple diagrams, this volume is highly recommended for the modern enthusiast, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents Include: "Sailing", "General Purpose Dinghies", "What to Sail and Where", "Mainsails", "Fore-Sails", "More Sails", "Rigging, Ropes and Knots", "The Hull and Fittings", "The Centre Board", "Ground Tackle", "Wind And Water Launching", "Landing and Moorings", "Points of Sailing", "Reefing", etc. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing "Dinghy Ownership" now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing.
