Young Sailor Learn to be a Good Sailor and Have Fun! by Basil Mosenthal

Aiming to familiarise seven to eleven year olds with yachts and family sailing, this is the ideal book to help the young sailor feel part of the family crew. It explains, with the help of clear and colourful illustrations, how a boat sails, and describes the different types of boats, flags, ropes, knots, weather and tides. Colour photographs will help inspire the young sailor, and with the help of a glossary and a sailing quiz, they will soon be able to understand, enjoy and participate in activities on board a yacht.
