This vintage book is a complete guide to sailing, with chapters on cooking and housekeeping at sea. Written in simple language and profusely illustrated, this volume will be of considerable utility to modern readers wishing to learn how to sail, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents Include: "On Setting Sail", "Sailing with Notes on Balance", "Lugs", "Strong Winds and Reefing", "Rules of the Road", "Mooring, Stowing, Awnings, Down Mast", "About Knots", "On Ship keeping", "The Kitchen", "Sailing Dictionary", etc. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
