Unlike most books on sail trim, which seem to be written exclusively for racing sailors, Peter Nielsen's (the editor of SAIL) book on sail trim, Sailpower is intended for the sailing community at large, not just the racing sailor. All seafarers, whether racer or cruiser, amateur or expert, will benefit from Nielsen's practical advice and superb illustrations that demonstrate how to achieve a perfect shape, and to get the most out of your sails. This is one book no sailor should be without.

Contents include: how sails work, essential sail trim tips, how to balance your boat, how to keep moving in light airs, heavy weather trim and techniques, spinnakers for cruising, how to tune your rig, reefing system improvements, running rigging, troubleshooting and care, and much more.
