The Classic Guide to Sailing
Available in Stock
Edward Knight was a journalist, adventurer and yachtsman who compiled the knowledge he had acquired on sailing into Small Boat Sailing, one of the first manuals on the subject. The book influenced a generation of sailors, not least Arthur Ransome, whose Swallows and Amazons characters refer to it. Including contemporary sketches, illustrations and photographs, this is a newly set version of the 1902 edition of Knight's classic.
