Sail Optimist! - Your first book about sailing
"This book has only one job to do: To make it as easy and enjoyable as possible to get
started as an Optimist sailor. Actually, here´s everything you need to know. If you haven’t tried sailing before, and would like to see what Optimist sailing is like – this is the place to start.
Most of the content in this book is pictures and drawings. Not so many words. That makes it a bit easier to see what to do, when the time comes for you to go sailing."
"Sail Optimist!" is currently available in norwegian, swedish and english. The book is developed in cooperation with the norwegian sailing federation NSF, and is primarily for kids 8-12 years, just starting to sail the Optimist. In Sweden, the book is published in cooperation with the swedish sailing federation SSF. In both countries, it is a part of the official learning material for sailing clubs and sailing schools.
The book is 64 pages. Each page is easy to grasp, and the amount of information is kept at a level where children down to seven years can follow. The content is organized logically, with the first, simple steps on the first pages. Each page asks a question, answered and closed on the same page. The format is adapted to a later iPad/tablet version.
