''Sailing is a popular sport and this book is a very comprehensive treatment of the subject....

--American Reference Books Annual

The Sailing Bible is for all sailors, whatever their level of experience. It provides novice sailors with all that they need to take to the water and helps experienced sailors improve their skills and deepen their knowledge. Instruction ranges from learning the anatomy of a boat to handling emergencies. An extraordinary amount of sound advice and expert tips will help all sailors to build their skills and knowledge, and help to ensure safety and increase enjoyment on the water.

This second edition has been revised to include updated maps and charts and current information on GPS and other factors related to navigation. The book's eight chapters cover a comprehensive range of more than 150 beginner to advanced topics for all sailors. The material covered includes:

  • Dinghies and yachts

  • Anchoring and marina berthing
  • Knots, ropes and flags
  • Boat etiquette and seamanship
  • Safety and emergencies and much more.




  • Hundreds of color photographs, explanatory drawings and navigation charts illustrate and further explain the important content. Call-out boxes and sidebars highlight information for easy reference and serve as reminders to the sailor.

    The Sailing Bible is the most comprehensive guide to the exciting sport of sailing. Fully updated and exceptionally well-priced, it is the ideal choice as a reference to keep onboard, as a resource in preparation for certification or as a practical gift for a new sailor of any age.
