Sailing Today

. . . .  this  book is  different.  It's  stuffed with over 150
clear  colour  illustrations  and informative captions and
explanations.  Genoa  trim and  mainsail trim, trimming
spinnakers and rig tuning are covered in three separate
sections.

. . . I  recommend  this little book to everyone  -
wether  expert  or  novice you'll find something.

Maybe  the  most  positive  aspect of this book is the
way Ivar explain things in basic layman's terms thus
making the subject an  enjoyable  read  and easy to
understand.  A  massive  bonus  is  heaps  of  colour
computer generated illustrations covering every, and
I mean every, term . . .

Ivar Dedekam's new book really is filled to the
brim with every scrap of information that both
novice and experienced sailor will welcome as
a "must have" edition to their bookshelves . . .

"It's done well and works well, and  manages to  cover
a surprising amount in a fairly small book. Although he
starts with the basics, the book would still have appeal
for experienced sailors.

. . . . . . . .My personal recommendation would be
that it is a great book for intermediate  sailors."

ENFIN!
Une méthode efficase pour bien régler son voilier


Un ouvrage indispensable aussi bien pour le débutant  qui
veut progresser rapidement à partir de bonnes bases que
pour le  skipper  confirmé qui a parfois  le  sentiment  de
n'avoir pas totalement tout compris.

DANISH SAILING ASSOCIATION

Every keelboat sailor should have a copy of this  book
made both for the novise and the  experienced  sailor.

The book, with its many  illustrations and clear
text, is  highly  recommendable and  should be
found on every sailors bookshelf.

Sailrite, Indiana

Reading this book is  an  excellent way to improve your
sailing skills. It is quite complete and the text is as clear
as  any we  have seen. But  what  really  sets this book
apart is its illustrations. They are simply utstanding.

This is one of the  few places where first time  spinnaker
users can turn  for help both in  rigging their boats and in
using the sail.

This book is beautiful. The paper is heavily coated
and  the  four  color  illustrations  are works of art.
Makes a wonderful gift - but be sure to get one for
youself as well.

Cruising

. . . Ivar Dedekam  has produced an  excellent, clearly
written and profusely illustrated shortcut to sail and rig
tuning  that  will  allow  most  sailors to  climb the long
learning curve much more quickly.

In his introduction, he  acknowledges that the book was
originally  inspired  by  my  own  "bible" on the  subject,
"The North U. Fast Course". I believe, however,Ivar's to
be  more comprehensive and better value for money. I
will urge anyone who takes their sailing seriously
to buy a copy.

Jim's Sailing Book Review

"Illustrated Sail & Rig Tuning" by  Ivar Dedekam
Worth its weight in gold. That's all I'm gonna say. Even if
you  think  you're  all  that and a bag of chips, and there
isn't a thing you don't already know about  sails and how
they work, this book is valuable to you. Why?

Because when your wife's  second  cousin  Percy  comes
aboard and starts asking endless boring questions about
airflow  and  rigging  choices, you can just hand him  this
book and tell him to look at the pretty pictures.

First on our bookshelf, since it's the best we've seen!
A compact, concise reference on how to trim your sails
and adjust your standing rigging. The best we've seen!

Reading about  different sail and rig tuning options have
sometimes confused me, but with  Ivar's pictures, it now
becomes perfectly clear. His illustrations not only tell you
the right  way to  tune your boat, but show the  improper
way and the effect it has on the sails ... This is a great
book to have to get the most out of your  sailboat,
no matter what the size.
