'The attractions of dinghy sailing are many and varied. There is an enjoyment of being afloat and getting healthy exercise in the open air; the satisfaction of having secured a tactical victory and outsailed one's competitors is another source of delight, while the appreciation of the skill of someone else in sailing a better race should not fail to arouse pleasure and interest.' This book is a great source of interest and knowledge as well as a spur to successful racing and a guide to proud ownership.
