Sail this way by Stuart McDonald is a good book to start with. The problem with going onto supposedly 'expert' falorums is you get showered with their d...

On the other hand I do have one. I evacuated it a short while ago - as is my morning custom - 06:30hrs each day. Shame I don't get up until 7.00....
