Architecture Student outsider to sailing. Hello and help me please?
Hey BW Sailing community,
I am TOTALLY new to the sailing world and have a somewhat unorthodox request for anyone willing to oblige me.
I'm an architecture student at Montana State University and we are doing a design studio based in San Francisco this semester. We're doing a sailing-themed project and our professor has suggested we look into BW Sailing, Sail, and other magazines as a possible resource.
Now I've always been a distant admirer of sailing in general, but like I say have practically no knowledge of it. I'm wondering if anyone out there would be willing to loan/sell a stack of old issues of a magazine you suggest so I don't sound like an idiot when I talk about sailing all this semester. I would just subscribe but time is too short and I need the info as soon as possible.
I'm also interested in any info you may have on the 'critical' introductory reading to be able to talk about/design something around sailing.
I really appreciate your consideration and hope you all can be willing to afford an 'outsider' a peek into your noble sport/craft/pastime/lifestyle that is sailing.
