Synopsis

Ian Nicolson has been involved with sailmaking for over 30 years. In this book he provides a treasure trove of tips and ideas for cruising and racing sailors alike. From solving roller furling problems to checking sail twist, curing chafe to stopping leech flutter, fitting luff foil protectors to preventing hank wear - there's something here for everyone, whether dinghy sailor, creek potterer, weekend cruiser or offshore racer. Just one of these ideas could save the reader the cost of the book.
