Recommended Books to help you Learn to Sail

Whilst the cost of sailing lessons includes the cost of a log book and course notes, I recommend people purchase one of the following books: 

bullet "The Penny Whiting Sailing Book" ($32.95) or 
bullet "Competent Crew" by Pat Langley Price & Philip Ouvrey ($35).
bullet "The Complete Sailor" by David Seidman (this is a U.S.A. book with delightful and instructive illustrations). 

For anyone interested in navigation, I recommend the following

bullet Navigating with Chart and Compass by Jeff Toghill
bulletCoastal Yacht Navigation by Craig Coutts 

They are all available from Boat Books Australia, 31 Albany St, Crows Nest (tel: 9439 1133) and Whitworths at Waringah Mall (tel: 9939 1055).

Boating Books and nautical charts can be ordered online through the  Boat Books Australia website
