Description

Over the past 30 years The Gaff Rig Handbook has become internationally regarded as the definitive reference for anyone designing, building, rigging or sailing either an existing gaff rigged craft or a new one. It outlines the practical aspects of the masts, spars, sails, running and standing rigging, and contrasts the development of gaff rig in Britain, America, Scandanavia and France.
This book provides a fascinating insight into the design, history, techniques and developments of a rig which has evolved over centuries and which is strongly extending its use for pleasure sailing in the 21st century.
