2021.05.01  Revisiting and refurbishing (coverage of)

the 2013 Midwinters

(2021.05.01)    KISS Your Dinghy - the KISS principle at its finest. Uncle Al's beautifully illustrated companion to The Wayfarer Book "keeps it simple" yet complete with the fruits of Al's 60+ years of all kinds of Wayfarer sailing. Spiral bound for easier reference.
Get your copy of the N.A. or the European editions here:
To obtain the European edition, you pay Uncle Al via PayPal > Al sends your mailing info to Mike Porter who ships the books at the far less expensive Euro rate.

(2021.05.01)  My latest printable updates on safety, self-rescue, halyards here.

(2020.10.29) From racing to reefing, The Wayfarer Book covers it all. A technical masterpiece fresh off the presses now in its 6th edition. Best value option is now ordering straight from the UKWA Store. Contact our Wayfarer Book Man, Bob Brown for  further info.
