This section contains a list of all the the sailing literature that I devoured in the past few years. Since I haven’t visited it in almost two years, I decided to revamp it. All boks will be classified in pre-defined categories  such as Racing, Offshore and Singlehanded Sailing, Cruising, Sailing History and Boat Maintenance and Preparation, at least at the beginning. I hope you will enjoy (some of) them as much as I did.
