The books have been produced to support the Yachting Australia Training Schemes, offered through Yachting Australia Training Centres (YATC) around the country. The books and the Schemes cover all types and levels of boating, ranging from learning to sail a dinghy or keelboat through to cruising, top level racing and power boating.
Yachting Australia's National Training Manager, Fiona MEDWIN stated, 'Yachting Australia is committed to assisting everyone to discover the fun of boating and sailing. Whether as a sport, lifestyle or great adventure, everyone can participate for life. The Yachting Australia Training Series is one way to assist people on their journey.'
She went on to say, 'The books have been tailored specifically for Australia and its local conditions, are comprehensive yet are presented in a simple and easy to understand format. Yachting Australia is proud that well known Australian 'yachties' such as Iain MURRAY, Tom KING, Hugh TREHARNE and Adrienne CAHALAN support the Yachting Australia Training Series, contributing the forewords to the books.'
The books have been produced by Yachting Australia and adapted for the Australian market under licence from US SAILING.
