The official learn-to-sail manual of the American Sailing Association and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary
by Gary Jobson
This edition of Sailing Fundamentals combines the training programs of the American Sailing Association and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. The officieal learn-to-sail manual of the ASA, it is also used in the programs of many yacht clubs, colleges, and sailing groups. Unlike most introductory sailing books, which reflect the biases and idiosycrasies of the authors, Sailing Fundamentals has been extensively pretested by ASA professional instructors to ensure that it offers the fastest, easiest, most systematic way to learn basic sailing and basic coastal cruising. This book covers every aspect of beginning sailing - from hoisting sail to docking and anchoring - and specifically prepares the learner to qualify for sailing certification according to international standards.
