Aubrey De Selincourt’s ‘Sailing – A Guide for Everyman’ is addressed primarily to those who may from time to time have felt some stirrings of a wish to sail, but have as yet no practical experience in the handling of boats. “What’s sailing like? Why do people who love it, love it so much?” That kind of unspoken question I have made some attempt to answer; and I have gone on to explain, in the briefest possible compass, the basic elements of the art of seamanship: those few things without a knowledge of which no man can take a boat to sea. The book also contains a wealth of useful information, such as the British system of buoyage, the regulations about lights and the rules for preventing collisions at sea.
