A Manual For Small Yachts

£24.99

Product description

A comprehensive and practical guide to sailing and construction techniques in regard to small yachts.

'It is a manual for owners and amateur crews of small sailing yachts, that is, yachts up to 15 tons or so. Here is a collection of "yacht data" and good sound advice, gathered together into a cheap and handy volume of a size which enables it to be carried on board when a bulkier volume has to be left ashore because there is nowhere to stow it.'

Many illustrations and tables. Newspaper cuttings have been left in.

Blue pictorial dust jacket with black lettering, covering purple boards with silver gilt lettering.

CONDITION: Good. Covers are clean with very minor scuffing. Dust jacket is creased along it's edges and has small tears. Also, light ring marks and rubbing to the edges of the spine on DJ. Binding is firm with no loose pages. Light tanning to most pages. Otherwise clean and unmarked.
