Thanks, Camaraderie. I'm not too modest to decline to acknowledge your and others' kind comments about THE ANNAPOLIS BOOK of SEAMANSHIP. Three editions ago, I wrote it for sailors for use both as a reference book and as a teaching manual, and I think it's worked.

All above mentioned books (Seidman's, Sleight's and Rousmaniere's) are comprehensive and well compiled and presented, but theory alone and only is useless. To learn sailing, you really have to wet your a..!
