Tuning Your Dinghy by Lawrie Smith

Tuning Your Dinghy throws a bright light on the black art of boat tuning. Here is a logical, systematic approach to the problem of setting up your boat and fine-tuning it for maximum speed on all points of sailing. A troubleshooting section at the back of the book shows how to pinpoint and cure specific weaknesses in your boat's performance. Tuning Your Dinghy is part of the Sail to Win series - books by world-class sailors and sailing coaches which take a fresh look at the complex subject of racing. Each book gives the detailed expert advice that the competent sailor must have to overcome the 'club racer' barrier and compete successfully in international fleets. The emphasis is on practical, effective advice presented in a straightforward, highly illustrated manner.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
