Sailingdog's list is excellent, most especially for singlehanders. It could be that
"Self-Steering for Sailing Craft," by John S. Letcher, Jr. would be a valuable addition to same.

On to something completely different - "The Breaking In of a Yachtsman's Wife," by Mary Heaton Vorse is a beautifully written journal of a young fiance, then wife of a yachtsman, written in 1908. Nothing technical, but in her gentle and humorous way describes the sailing scene in America and Europe.

A very good bookseller address is: Abebooks.com. I use them frequently for all book genres and have never been disappointed. My last name is not Abe and have no interest in that organization.

Here's to an early Season . . .
