JJ and Peter Isler have been sailing for most of their lives. JJ grew up around boats in San Diego, California, learning to sail in a little 7-foot dinghy called a Sabot. Peter started out loving powerboats and fishing (boys can be so strange!), but took up sailing after his family moved to Connecticut when he was 13 years old. They both have taught sailing to people of all ages and experiences. Peter played an important, early role in developing US Sailing’s educational program. The Islers are well known throughout the world of sailing as top competitors and teachers

  • So far, it's an extremely informative book. I'm new to the sailing world and before I invest in my future house, I need to know all I can about it. This book is getting into the nitty-gritty to teach me all the technical terminology and what to expect before I take my classes. Great read for anyone interested in learning to sail, and I would assume it's great information to gloss over for the experienced sailor, too

  • Very comprehensive. I'm an old and quite experienced sailor and purchased the book to consider it as a textbook for teaching my nephews how to sail. Needless to say, it makes a fabulous textbook.

  • I chose this rating as this truly is a wonderful book for beginners as it is so thorough and easy to understand! I just bought it before going on a sailing course myself and found it helpful to use even on the boat as I learned! Every sailor I spoke to knew of this book and said "oh that is the best book - I know that sailor." Actually it is not for dummies at all, in that it is not so basic that you feel insulted...No one else has ever been able to explain clearly to me the physics or principles behind sailing into the wind...yet this book did by comparing it to putting your hand out the car window and having the wind pull your hand - that is lift! It tackles quite deep subjects and explains all the terms...I would recommend this book to anyone before they attempt sailing - it will give you a great basis for enjoyment on the water!)

  • Very good for the person, like me, who knows nothing about sailing. I have only read about a third of the book so far, but I have learned a lot. I may deserve 5 stars, but a lot of the concepts of sailing are just difficult to understand without hands on experience, of which I at this point have none.

  • If you want to learn to sail, you're no dummy! This is a great addition to your sailing library. The authors are respected in the lifestyle. Unlike some other books on the subject, the authors are not pompous and their expertise. Topic sections are to the point with how and why.

  • Comprehensive and then some! Very racing oriented as you would expect given the authors' credentials. Good coverage of sailing with children and an overview of boat-born medicine. Lots of performance sailing advice. Best knot tying instruction illustrations for the basic sailing knots. I recommend getting the paper version as the Kindle version, at least on the PC and Android, chops off the right end of the illustrations.

    Overall a valuable addition to your sailing library if you are new to the sport as am I.

  • Good text easy to read.
    After reading this book I'm qualified to be an USS Never sail Admiral

  • Great and easy and fun book to read! If you are looking for learning the basics to upper intermediate this is the book. The advanced stuff, lets be honest, has to be learned from experience.
