as i said, greetings,
i live in kagoshima, southern japan
, and i dive and kayak
often from the local beaches.
i am not sure where i should post my inquiry, so i shall post it here. i am looking to buy one or two books
about sailing, with two objectives. the first is practical, in that i would like to know how sailing in general works. the second is an indulgence of curiosity; i would like the books
that i buy to explain how the 15th to 18th century ships got in and out of the harbour, how such enormous ships sailed into the wind
and where the galley
was in relation to the water
stores. in short, i want to learn about the history
and the modern practice of sailing, and i would like to keep it to as few books as possible.
(so that the wife stays happy)
i am a papercraft genius, so if you want a paper model of any ship, perhaps i can help you.
