arbarnhart's suggestion is a good one, IMO. That being said: There've been several books recommended to me and others, pretty consistently, and, for $100 at Amazon, you can probably get all of 'em. Or damn close.
Complete Sailor, David Seidman - About all things sailing
Boater's Bowditch, Richard K. Hubbard - Navigation
Sail and Rig Tuning, Ivar Dedekam - Just what it says
Voyager's Handbook, Beth Leonard - Cruising
Chapman Piloting, Seamanship and Small Boat Handling, Elbert S. Maloney, Charles Frederic Chapman - Just what the title says
I'm current reading Boater's Bowditch. After that I'll be getting back to Complete Sailor.
After that: My next Amazon order will be for the at least two of the last three, if not all three.
