Alright! It’s here, the summer has arrived and there is much sailing to be done. And after a day on the water, what’s better than relaxing on the foredeck (maybe even in a hammock?) and reading a book about sailing. Here’s a list, in no particular order, that is worth the effort.
Bareboat Cruising Made Easy
by the American Sailing Association
Well, c’mon, we’re putting one of our own on this list not just because it’s our website and our story but because it’s a really good book! Bareboat Cruising Made Easy is 212 pages of focused information that is indispensable for those looking to charter but it’s also very valuable for those who do a lot of cruising. Like all of ASA’s books, it’s written in an informal easy-to-understand manner that makes the learnin’ go down smooth. It goes step by step through the process of chartering and it’s loaded with great pictures and diagrams to ensure readers understand the concepts completely. The book is truly comprehensive covering literally hundreds of different issues. It’s one of those books that never collects dust on the shelf because someone is always picking it up.
