Dinghy, mono, or multi, everyone should have this onboard (in my opinion): The Annapolis Book of Seamanship, 3rd Edition Revised (9780684854205): John Rousmaniere, Mark Smith: Books

Here are a few for your consideration.

Brief description:-

Do you dream about sailing but can't imagine when you could find the time to learn? Steve & Doris Colgate understand. At the Offshore Sailing School, the Colgates have helped more than 100,00 adults- three quarters of whom started as beginning sailors or complete newcomers, relize there seafaring deesires. Now in FAST TRACK to SAILING, the Colgates offer their proven instructional methods to all aspiring sailors with big dreams & little time.

Brief description:-

The best all round book on sailing with very clear photographs and illustrations. Applicable to learners and the average sailor. 352 pages.

Brief description:-

This is an A - Z of seamanship skills for catamarans and trimarans both cruising and racing. The author gives the benefit of his many years of racing and cruising multihulls. 144 pages.

All the best,
