A fabulous book for beginning sailors
If you are interested in joining the fastest growing sport on water, this is the perfect first book.
I was at the marina the other day and met a guy who had just purchased his first sailboat. We began talking about his new boat. When I asked him if he was going to take it out today he said no because his instructor was out of town and he'd only sailed it once before. I began to reminisce about my first boat and how I learned to sail. Because we didn't have sailing instructors in Eastern North Carolina 39 years ago.
In 1972 I purchased my first sailboat, a Helms 25. You've probably never heard of a Helms, but its just like any other boat; it had all the same parts and sailed on the same principles. Anyway, when I was thinking about buying this boat, I had one problem; I'd never stepped foot on a sailboat in my life, had no idea of what made it go or what anything on it was called. All I knew was I wanted to get away from my business and phone and this thing looked like the perfect ticket. I told the dealer if he could show me how to sail I would buy his boat. He said anybody can learn to sail in only a few hours, you just need to know the theory, it only looks complicated.
So, the next day the dealer put me in touch with George, a customer who also purchased a Helms a few years earlier. George agreed to take me out to show me the ropes (on a sailboat it's called lines). It was about 5:30 and the sun was was going down at 7:00, so we didn't have much time for learning. Well, Ole George was a retired engineer and he didn't waste much time before he was explaining Bernoulli's principle, sailing on a beam reach, demonstrating tacks and performing a safe jibe maneuver. In fact we where only on the water for 45 minutes and the lesson was over. All that was left was practice. I went back and bought my boat. Six boats later, I'm still practicing, but I learned to sail in 45 minutes. My e-book below contains the lesson George taught me 39 years ago plus a few things he left out.
I'm so confident you will learn from my book that I will immediately return your money is you are not fully satisfied. Just send me an email and say "Gimme my money back"

Learn to sail in 1 hour.
YOU CAN READ THIS BOOK IN THE MORNING AND BE SAILING IN THE AFTERNOON
My e-book takes all the fat out of learning to sail. It is my intention to offer a book that will get you onto the water and sailing with confidence in a matter of hours. There have been mountains of how to sail books written, all contain pages and pages of illustrations, techniques. sail handling tips, terms and definitions, racing strategies and methods to catch every molecule of air. No matter how many books you read or how thick the book is, there's no way to learn faster than getting into a sailboat and experiencing the real thing. Imagine reading a book to learn to ride a bicycle; it ain't gonna happen. This book was written to give the student the general theory of sailing, because once you know the theory you can master the mechanics.
Even if you're just going for a ride, your friends will think you're an "old salt"
