Sail trim: Uniquely illustrated sail trim & rig tuning book for both cruising and racing yachtsmen. A Dededekam Design Sailing book


Illustrated Sail & Rig Tuning
DD-logo Gold
Sail trim and rig tuning made easy! Both for experts and novices. In this new book I have tried to distil those rules of thumb and theories pertaining to sail trim and rig tuning commonly agreed upon among the sailing community. What makes this new book on sail trim and rig tuning different from most other books on the topic, is the short, concentrated text with adjacent corresponding illustrations. 80 pages with more than 150 particularly descriptive colour illustrations giving an interesting, easily accessible introduction to the art of trimming sails and rig. The aim is to make it easier to find, understand and last but not least remember the information that you are seeking pertaining to sail trim and rig tuning.
