Dinghy Cruising (1963)

by Ian Nicolson. Bosun Books 17, 1963, Adlard Coles

Published 60 years ago, this is a super little book, with chapters on The Best Type; Size; Construction; Rigs; Extra Sails; Tents; Strategy and Tactics (?) and much more. The merits (or not) of dinghies of the day are explored such as the Morag, Gull, Bembridge Scow, Wayfarer, Solent Seagull and more. The effect of just two more feet of length is explored in depth. Pretty much everything you need to know to get started, or go a bit further, with much wisdom on every one of the 64 pages. A classic. A bit surprisingly, I see ABE books has one for sale
