Sailing Language is not yet another dictionary; rather it is a useful, literate compendium of the language of boats and sailing. It contains the vocabulary sailors use, arranged so that they can find the words they want for the particular use they want to make of them.

Like all human endeavors, sailing has its own language; a rich terminology reflecting the ancient and sophisticated nature of the sport.

Sailing Language is your key to correct and proper usage.

Review:

"...a serious attempt to lay out and define the words used to talk about sailing in all its forms." --The Ellsworth American, November 2000
