ABOUT YOUR BOOK

What is holding you back from becoming a great sailor? Are you unsure in your mind exactly how to sail or what to do? What are the circumstances that cause you difficulty and confusion?  Would you like no more confusion or intimidation?  That’s what I wanted because I loved sailing.  I needed a solution.

Sailing For Blondes, The Simulator Book, Learn Twice as Fast and Twice as “Good”  is the only step-by-step sailing fundamentals book that is NOT purely technical in its approach to sailing instruction.

Each chapter in the book gives students: 

a technical CONCEPT

a fictional  STORYLINE,

and, the a  STEP-BY-STEP LEARNING DIALOGUE 

The dialogue on the boat on how to sail is just as if they were actually on a sailboat. There are three characters in the book and their conversations teach you how to sail.

It keeps students engaged in an interactive way using the simulator to learn sailing in the shortest, possible time.

And, it is NOT dry or boring!

ABOUT YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Joyce Matlock teaches new sailors and sailors wanting to brush up on their skills to understand how to sail. This book offers one of the best-combined teaching methods for men and women you can find on sailing instruction. It includes HOW TO USE a patent-pending, hands-on learning tool called The Simulator that firmly fixes sailing concepts into your brain. You will use the sailing simulator throughout the book to seal your understanding of what you are reading. The title is a take-off on the Dummies series of books. When you use the sailing simulator while reading the book, you will easily understand how to sail.  We have lots of GREAT REVIEWS right here on our website!

ABOUT SAILING A BOAT

THE BOOK AND PROVEN LEARNING THEORIES

The book presents multiple ways to learn. The sailing concept is explained, and then the STORYLINE with THREE CHARACTERS brings sailing to life, and the DIALOGUE tells a student EVERY STEP to take to learn HOW 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.

 MY REASONS

FOR WRITING THE BOOK 

 

Sailing for Blondes

THE SIMULATOR BOOK

  Learn Twice as Fast and Twice as “Good”

 

“ARE YOU CONFUSED?  I WAS.”


 

 

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 others to go through that much pain and frustration! 

 

FOR MY SAILING FRIENDS

My book began as a simple and short written explanation for my friends on how to sail.  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 to 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.

 

YOUR OUTCOME

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!

 

“The book, Sailing for Blondes, is true-to-life, factual, fun, and  it guides you through the simulator.”
