Boating Bookshop presents: Sailing holidays world wide.

Books to improve your sailing skills!

Sailing is not difficult, though some who think they master "the noble art of sailing" love telling you it is! The truth is, you can go from knowing nothing to be a safe and decent sailor in a relatively short time, if you put some effort into it.

However, there are many facets to sailing - that is the beauty of it. And you will never ever know all you need to know about how to sail in order to bring the maximum perfomance out of your boat. You can always improve on your sailing skills. Here is some essential reading to help you on your way.

PS: If you are into racing, and want to learn the finer points of tactics, sail trimming etc., you'll find all you need in the "Racing" section.
