The first big event of the sailing season
is the Spring Rendezvous. This event, like the Summer and Fall Rendezvous,
is accessible by land or water, though members are encouraged to come by
water if possible. (After all, this is a sailing
association.) This event is a big party, generally over 100 people, and
has a small charge to cover the costs.
An in-depth reference to almost every essential system
found on a sailboat. Calder has well-considered strategies for everything.
Granted, there are good alternatives to some of his approaches, but he
won't lead you astray. This is a book you can trust. Now expanded in
its second edition.
