Reviews - What do customers think about Short-handed Sailing?
A worthless "little" Book and I do mean little Feb 12, 2008
Never have I paid as much for a book, and gotten so little. When it came in the mail I thought I had gotten a magazine. Only 135 pages of short paragraphs containing general information that any sailor would already know. Book has tiny little pictures, most of which are not even captioned. Also the author has a very strange idea of what short-handed sailing means: skipper and 1 or 2 crew is short handed? The book certainly doesn't refer to single-handing at all. There are other books on solo-sailing and shorthanded sailing out there with twice the information and for less money.
