I highly recommend the book "The Complete Sailor":
Amazon.com: The Complete Sailor, Second Edition eBook: David Seidman: Kindle Store Amazon.com: The Complete Sailor, Second Edition eBook: David Seidman: Kindle Store



We use this as the textbook in the teaching program at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle. It answers questions like this very nicely, is easy to browse and read, and is not expensive.

When I first learned how to sail I would keep two copies handy, one on the boat and one at home. I was constantly thumbing through it.
