Phil Berman has a good book, "Catamaran Sailing". I read this book after my first season of cat sailing. I should have read it before. It is aimed at H16's but the principles are all the same for other cats. It will take about one day to read it and will give you some good basic skills to build on.

Get Rick White book. It is best saling book you will ever read.

Pass it on to someone else when you are finished.

Will teach you everthing you need to know.

Then just practice, practice, practice.

Nothing beats time on the water.

Good Luck,

Doug
