Steve and Doris Colgate, owner/operators of Offshore Sailing School, released their newest book, “Fast Track to Sailing — Learn to Sail in Three Days.”

The book was developed to help achieve the ultimate goal of many sailors — to go cruising. It is the culmination of years of development through Offshore Sailing School’s introductory sailing program.

“Fast Track to Sailing” constitutes the first half of the Colgates’ “Fast Track to Cruising” program and contains all the techniques and understanding one needs for daysailing alone or with crew. It teaches the basics, including the language of sailing, how it applies to maneuvers aboard, and the theory and functions that make sailboat handling easier.

The 120-page book can be purchased for $19.95. Click here for more.
