RYA Competent Crew

by Art on

A good, basic book for anyone who wants to learn a bit about sailing so they don't feel so helpless their first few times on a sailboat. Nicely put together with good illustrations on the parts of the sailboat, rules of the road and things you can do to assist the skipper. Recommended reading for anyone going along on a sailboat and a nice review for those of us who already think we know all this stuff!
