Learn to Sail

Learn to Sail is the simplest way to start sailing. Step-by-step advice takes you through everything you need to get afloat and start having fun.

Unique onboard photography and free online videos offer whole new perspective – it’s like you’re on the boat yourself. Plus mast-top cameras show you exactly where to sit and what to do during every manoeuvre.

Learn to Sail is a jargon-free book, allowing complete novices to get out on the water with the minimum of fuss. As well as learning how to sail, there’s advice on safety, rigging, launching, recovery and capsizing.

One and two-person dinghies are covered and there are even tips on flying colourful downwind sails.

The basic structure of national dinghy sailing courses is followed, though with the emphasis on keeping it simple and ensuring everyone has fun.

Author Tim Hore has been sailing all his life and is an experienced dinghy sailor and offshore yachtsman.
