Each year, more and more people are participating in the wonderful sport of sailing so that, today, it ranks as one of the most popular pastimes in the United States. Years ago, sailing was considered a sport for the "wealthy." Now, due to the development of new materials and designs, sailboats may be purchased and maintained at a much lower cost -- thus enabling more people to own their own boat. Sailing is also becoming an important part of the recreational programs of many camps, colleges and communities. Many excellent books have been written on the subject of sailing and much will be learned by reading them. The writer wishes to state at this time that this is not a textbook but rather, in outline form, a suggested course in fresh water sailing. The author believes, however, that the following material may be easily adapted to suit the needs of those instructors whose sailing programs are conducted on bodies of salt water.
