In Hand, Reef and Steer--winner of the Best Book of the Sea Award--Tom Cunliffe explains the different sailing characteristics of classic craft and shares his grasp of the special skills required to handle them. He describes how to handle heavy loads using tackles rather than winches and reveals the mysteries of how to make the boat work for you instead of fighting with her gear. He shares step-by-step advice on setting up the rig; sail handling skills (hoisting, setting and reefing); heavy and light air sailing; maneuvering a long-keel boat; losing way, scandalizing and steering with sails, topsails, watersails, single-luff spinnakers, and fisherman staysails; and much, much more.

Hand, Reef and Steer, with its wonderful watercolor drawings and atmospheric photos, will delight all who love the unique character and grace of classic craft.
