Sure, if you want to sail through the Bermuda Triangle, you need a deep understanding of many seemingly unrelated disciplines. From physics to weather, to knot tying, to celestial navigation, to maneuvering a motor boat, to first aid, to operating a 2-way radio, the list goes on and on. To be a recreational sailor however, you only need a bit from each one of these categories. Just enough to get you by, to get you out on the water quickly and safely, having fun. This guide cuts through the clutter that is usually found in sailing courses, and gives you just what you need to know to Teach Yourself to Sail. I should know. I taught myself to sail. I tried some classes too, and came away with one conclusion: they’re useless. Sailing is something you learn by doing, by making your own mistakes. I've now been sailing for 15 years on every kind of sailboat from a catamaran to a “Laser” to a 36 ft yacht. Everywhere from the Great Barrier Reef to the Puget Sound, to the Chesapeake Bay, from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean. These are my own notes, revised an expanded to offer a clean concise resource for you. If you have the adventurous spirit, if you want to take the bull by the horns and Teach Yourself to Sail!
