The Craft of Sail

  Author:   Jan Adkins    
  Publisher:  Wooden Boat Books

We are pleased to bring this book back into print, as it focuses on why and how sailing “works.” It’s an excellent guide to understanding boats and how the wind and water affect them. Author/illustrator Jan is an “explainer”… and this book does just that.

You’ll see drawings of different types of boats and understand what makes a schooner a schooner, a catboat a catboat, a yawl a yawl… and more. He uses ants and peanuts to explain vectors. How can you miss-out on ants and peanuts? And yes, the book gives you the basics of sail maneuvers.
