Synopsis

Sailing for Kids by Gary Kibble, Steve Kibble

Sailing is a sport for life, and this photographic guide gives children aged eight or more a perfect introduction to the art. Written in clear, non-technical language it contains all the information young readers need to rig, sail and enjoy their boats - in safety. For those who want to go further, there are also tips on sailing faster and preparing to race. The book is based on the International Optimist, the world's most popular children's boat and an established favourite with sailing schools. This the official handbook to the RYA Young Opportunity Scheme, launched by HRH Prince Andrew as a campaign to encourage more children into sailing.
