First Timer

I am going to learn to sail and my wife gave me a book her mother had written in 1985 by Rob. I bought the updated Ebook version. I have gone through it once and will gothrough it again. It sure gives a person a good look at how to sail.

I can’t wait to do the real sailing and put to use everything i have read. Great book.
