An A-Z of Sailing Terms (Oxford Quick Reference) by Dear, Ian

Handy and authoritative, this invaluable guide deserves a place on every sailors bookshelf. Abridged from the acclaimed Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, An A-Z of Sailing Terms provides detailed explanations of nearly 1,500 sailing terms, covering everything from booby-hatch and growler to jack in the basket and throat seizing. Included are entries on navigational and meteorological subjects, weather lore, sailing expressions, and catch phrases--to the bitter end, for example, is a sailing term that has now passed to general use. The 150 illustrations are themselves a comprehensive guide to rigs and rigging, knots, tackles, and a wide variety of onboard fittings and equipment. Fully revised and updated, this useful reference also includes coverage of the latest racing rules and modern yacht design.
