Sail and Rig: The Tuning Guide
by Klann, Magne & Oyvind Bordal
A well-trimmed sailboat is not only faster, it heels less, balances better, and is more comfortable and safe. In addition, wear and load are reduced and expensive gear lasts longer. This excellent guide is well laid out with photographs and illustrations showing how to trim sails and tune rigging to suit all conditions. It will give you a clear understanding of the dynamics of rig and sail and how to get them working together in harmony with the elements.
