A soup-to-nuts introduction to small, economical sailing craft Trailer sailers--the smallest, most economical sailboats with sleeping accommodations--are a popular platform for learning the basics of sailing and are often considered to be the entry level to cruising under sail. Author Brian Gilbert shows how trailer sailers can be the ideal craft for a lifetime of enjoyment, including serious, long-distance cruising. This book covers all the bases, including how to inspect, buy, and equip a boat; how to trailer, sail, navigate, and cruise in small boats; how to use communications and navigation equipment; and more.
Previously published as On the Wind, this new edition takes the reader from the first sail to a mastery of small-boat handling, including navigation, design, seamanship, anchoring, ropework, rigging, weather, rules of the road, trailering and working the winds. 600 illustrations.
This is not just an instructional book---it's an insight into a sailor's approach to the sea, boats, and the ever-changing dynamic of wind on the water "A learn-to-sail book with heart."--WoodenBoat "A real winner...a masterful blend of straightforward text with delightful and instructive illustrations. Quite simply a great primer on sailing and the world of boats for readers of all ages."--Cruising World "Teaches sailing with flair and poetry."--SAIL "A great walk-through for the novice, both entertaining and thorough."--Sailing "Sits in a class by itself. Elegantly simple, encyclopedic in scope, and a delightful reference for any novice—with lots to offer intermediate sailors, too."--Kalamazoo Gazette If you never sailed, sailed once, or have sailed for a lifetime, this book is perfect for beginners but deep enough content for those interested in going beyond basics. Revised and expanded to include racing and GPS navigation, The Complete Sailor is not just a how-to sail book, but a book that teaches you how to become a sailor.

The idea of learning to sail excites the imagination with fantasies of a carefree, simple way to relax. But in reality, a lot of work goes into mastering the technical aspects of sailing and learning how to get from one place to another without ending up in the water. Other sailing books go into more detail than the casual learner wants or needs.

In it, readers get: - A primer on the different types of sailboats and tips for buying or renting - Detailed descriptions of the parts and controls of a sailboat - The roles and jobs of sailor and crew - How to get the boat into the water (if it isn't already) - The mechanics of sailing - Departing, anchoring, and docking - Handling, navigating, and weather - Sailing safety and emergency preparedness - The rules of the sailing road - Backup plans: engines and oars - Storing, hauling, and maintaining a sailboat
