In his book Plain Sailing, Dallas Murphy gives new sailors the essential information needed to get on a boat and become a significant crewmember, while also offering experienced sailors a strong reminder of what it means to be out there in the first place. Murphy’s straightforward philosophy is this: learning to see like a sailor means appreciating the inherent beauty of wind on sail.

For newbie sailors and salty dogs alike, this is a refreshing approach that inevitably leads to a more rewarding sailing experience.
