    Review quote
    "Since the first edition, "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship" has been the definitive source for sailing and seamanship. The new 4th edition brings this essential reference up to date with the latest in equipment and sailing technique. There is nothing else like it. Clear and concise, yet complete; "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship" covers this vast topic with a clarity in organization, language, and presentation to allow thorough understanding, and with enough depth and detail to provide real substance. This is the book I go to, and the one I recommend to sailors of every experience level."--Bill Gladstone "Director, North U, co-author The Instant Handbook of Boat Handling, Navigation, and Seamanship "
