This is a complete guide to sails and sail trim for the cruising yachtsman. If your sails are set right your boat will:

– be faster

– be more comfortable

– be in balance

– look better

– be safer

– have sails that last longer

Convinced? Then read on. Here Mark Chisnell demystifies the black art of sail trim. His aim is to get you the right sails, help you set them properly in all wind strengths and show you how to look after them. He covers upwind trim and safe downwind speed under cruising chute or spinnaker.
