Synopsis: Unlike most books on sail trim, which seem to be written exclusively for racing sailors, Peter Nielsen's Sailpower is intended for the sailing community at large. Any and all seafarers, whether racer or cruiser, amateur or expert, will benefit from Nielsen's down-to-earth practical advice and superb illustrations that demonstrate exactly how to achieve a perfect set-up to get the most out of your sails. This is one book no sailor can afford to be without.

Contents include: how sails work, essential sail trim tips, how to balance your boat, how to keep moving in light airs, heavy weather trim and techniques, spinnakers for cruising, how to tune your rig, reefing system improvements, running rigging, troubleshooting and care, and much more.

About the Author: Peter Nielsen was assistant editor of Yachting Monthly for 10 years and is now the editor of SAIL, America's leading magazine for cruising and racing sailors. He has sailed and raced yachts of all sizes and types all over the world.
