Boats are affected by wind, tide, current, gravity and many other natural phenomena, and exist in a world of dynamic and constant change. The author looks at the sailboat through the eyes of a popular scientist and explains the scientific reasons why the boat behaves as it does. This book will help all sailors be more in tune with their boats and the water around them.
