Sailing to Win! by Nick Weall, September , Nexus Special Interests edition, Paperback in English. Sailing employs the wind—acting on sails, wingsails or kites—to propel a craft on the surface of the water (sailing ship, sailboat, windsurfer, or kitesurfer), on ice or on land over a chosen course, which is often part of a larger plan of navigation.. A course defined with respect to the true wind direction is called a point of sail.

It is illustrated throughout with line drawings.
