Try Amazon, maybe they have the Glenans Manual translated in Spanish, I know exist in Italian and of course in French. Wonder if any sailing school in California have something on line.

Good luck, Dario

Try Google search for sailing clubs in Spain, or Argentina and contact them via their websites, they may know of such a book.
Buena suerte!

Kathy Parsons wrote a book: "Spanish for Cruisers" that could be used the other way. Although it mostly is for repairs and maintenance, it has all the sailing terms and hardware terms.

I once saw a book called "Sailor Talk" that had sailing terms in several languages, Spanish , French, English, German and Dutch. I believe it was published in England.
