The Annapolis Book of Seamanship

by Art on

How do you review a classic like this? I can safely say (as others have) that this is one of the 'definitive' books on sailing and seamanship. Without a doubt, a book I return to time and time again to learn something new. Definitely on the short list of essential books to have onboard.
