Sail Like A PRO in combination with on water training will set you up to become a confident, skillful sailor. This manual is the product of over 50.000 miles teaching people to sail in sheltered waters, offshore and in a racing environment. Professional instructor and journalist Marc van Dinther explains sailing in an easy to understand way, starting at the very beginning.
Clear photos, pro tips and step by step instructions will advance your progess in a swift way. Eighttime Volvo Ocean Race legend Bouwe Bekking wrote the foreword for Sail Like A PRO. “I would have love to have had a copy on hand when I started sailing. This handbook will give you a lot of insight into things that you normally wouldn’t even think about.”
Sail Like A PRO is written with the new sailor in mind and as a quick reference guide for the more experienced yachtie. It resulted in a pocketsized guide for cockpit and cabin use that covers everything from the first step on board, use of safety gear, rigging the boat, knots and the no-sail zone to road rules, navigation, emergencies, weather, racing and the joys and pitfalls of boat ownership.
