I think this is a classic book of beginner’s sailing instruction. It’s quite easy to follow and to understand, with excellent, clear, cartoon like illustrations (very effective, in my opinion). Though aimed at beginning sailors, possibly at rather young sailors in fact, it dives right in and introduces all the nomenclature and parts of a boat, how to sail at all points of the wind, and so on. Highly recommended.
