I have a few books but two that I think are good are ..
"THE EVERYTHING SAILING BOOK" by michael and Nikki Smorenburg..
"VOYAGING THE PACIFIC" by Miles Horden.
Last one is a good read by an author who knows how to write. It also has a small history of exploration throughout and is really informative.
Big plus is he is a neighbour of mine from just across the ditch in Kiwiland..
