Item description for Sailing Small: Inspiration and Instruction for the Pocket Cruiser by Stan Grayson...

Proving that one does not need to be wealthy to enjoy a lifetime of fulfillment aboard a cruising sailboat, this collection contains anecdotes from eight experienced sailors who have voyaged safely and comfortably aboard boats ranging from 16-foot centerboard gaff cutters to ocean-going 22-foot cutters. Included is the story of the Sea Dart, the small sailboat made famous by adventurer Tristan Jones in his bestselling book, The Incredible Voyage. Contributors relate how they could afford larger, more complex boats but have resisted the urge to upgrade for reasons both practical and philosophical. Topics covered include boat selection, cooking, toilet facilities, ventilation, sleeping, and seamanship.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Sailing Small: Inspiration and Instruction for the Pocket Cruiser?

An inspiration to buck the trend  Jul 7, 2005
After recently realising that a small, traditional boat can have many advantages over today's 'dream boat', it was a delight to discover others that share the experience. As I learn about the capabilities of my 18' gaff yawl, this book provides inspiration for fit-out, handling, rigging and, above all, the immense capabilities of a variety of well-designed small craft. By following the example of these writers, you'll be sailing sooner, more often and have more fun.
Nice stories about small boats  Jun 13, 2005
This books owners tell about their experiences with 8 small boats. If you think you must buy a big boat, read this and you'll see it's not so. Just depends on your application and how squished you're willing to be on a longer passage. The different writing styles and perspectives of the various owners is a pleasure.
