Cruising Sailboat Kinetics
By

Rating
A boat-design handbook written for the everyday, non-professional sailor, it demystifies boat-design terminology and concepts and opens up for recreational sailors a new world of understanding why sailboats act the way they do. It explains how boat designers transform sailing dreams and abstract design criteria into today's sleek, functional, three-dimensional craft. The first half of the book is a primer, a beginner's guide to design terminology and concepts, laced with photographs and clear, non-technical illustrations, while the second half of the book is a heavily illustrated showcase of the best cruising-sailboat designs, including a lengthy explanation of what makes each design special.
