First of all let me say how impressed I am by the friendliness of this site. I hope this means I won't be laughed at when I tell you we just bought our first boat, a 21 foot cruiser, with only a very basic knowledge of how to sail. For various reasons, it was now or never, and we were hoping we could learn as we went along. However, basic stuff like changing the running rigging
has left us stumped. We think it needs doing but don't know where to start. Can anyone recommend a good book or website that explains things to absolute beginners?
Thanks in advance,
