ABOUT SAILING A BOAT
The patent-pending sailing simulator works just like sailing a boat. If you decide to learn to sail on your own, this book and simulator will speed your learning curve enormously. If you decide to take an on-the-water sailing course, this book and the companion simulator will prepare you with your mental edge of understanding so you can get your money’s worth! The outcome will be an understanding of sailing basics and concepts and that’s what you must learn to know how to sail a boat.
- The book presents multiple ways to learn. The sailing concept is explained, the storyline brings sailing to life, and the dialogue tells a student every step to take when learning to sail.
- The style is based on proven learning theories and parallels Piaget’s 1977 constructivist learning theory that is still being taught and used today. Text, story telling, visual presentation, transfer of existing knowledge, personal conversational involvement and use of the hands-on sailing simulator make for a learning experience that meets you where you are!
- The book gives step-by-step instruction. It first gives an overview of, A Simple Explanation of How to Sail, and is then sectioned with step-by-step instruction from boarding the boat, the sailboat parts and sailing language, use of the points-of-sail simulator, simply sailing, returning to dock, and more.
- The book is engaging. It is written to keep each student engaged in a learning process in an interesting and entertaining way while giving foundational learning in the shortest time possible.The book is unique. It is not like any other book written on sailing instruction. It simplifies sailing concepts for your brain and is therefore fun to do. Again, it is not dry or boring!
- The book is great for sailing instructors. Use the book and simulator together to enable your students to succeed faster.

WHY I WROTE THE BOOK
I kept asking myself why was I having difficulty understanding how a boat sails? Once I finally understood it, I wanted to help others who were having the same problem. It took me a long time to learn from reading and studying technical sailing books and I didn’t want other to go through that much pain and frustration! ☺
FOR MY SAILING FRIENDS
My book began as a simple and short written explanation on how to sail for my friends. I was explaining how easy it was to understand sailing by using what became my patent-pending simulator. I just wanted to show others at my sailing club how to learn to sail much easier. I really had no idea that it would develop into a book project that would take on a life of its own!
MY MASTER’S IN TEACHING
I got my Master’s very late in life and have realized since that the benefit of getting it was to help me write my book. I did not know that at the time. I thought I was getting it because I wanted to teach and I did that, but it has become clear to me that my real calling was to teach others how to sail! My book is very unique in that it uses multiple proven theories on how people learn. There is conceptual information in the book, but more importantly it is presented in ways that encourage your brain to learn.
The conceptual sailing information is simple to understand text and also has visual illustrations on the points of sail that are critical to learning to sail a boat. The storyline connects to the conceptual information and adds the emotional joy of sailing and being with others. And, the conversational dialogue is the talk that you would hear on a sailboat when learning to sail. It offers real interaction with some light humor.
I know you will learn by reading and studying my book and it will touch your brain and your heart whether you are blonde, brunette, redhead or a guy or gal. ENJOY this book while learning to ride the wind!
