Highly illustrated in full colour, and with a minimum of words, this little book teaches the basic knowledge you need to be a competent crew on a sailing yacht. Parts of a boat, handling lines and sails, steering, keeping lookout, mooring and anchoring, and more. As Ellen MacArthur says on the front cover "This book will be a great help during your first few days afloat." It obviously worked for her then ! PB. 72pp.
