This photographic guide to sailing for
children, from the age of eight upwards, contains all the information
the young sailor needs to rig, sail and enjoy his or her boat in safety.
The world's most popular class of boat -
Optimist - is used throughout the book which is, itself, the official
handbook from the Young Opportunity Scheme which introduces thousands of
youngsters into the sport of sailing via fleets of Optimists largely
sponsored by the Prudential Assurance Company.
