College Sailing Made Easy
New Book From Philip Freedman
A Guide for the Beginning College Sailor
SAN DIEGO, Calif. College Sailing Made Easy, a new book from Philip Freedman, offers an introduction to sailing for college and high school students.
As a sailing coach at Arizona State University, Freedman found that a significant percentage of the students turning out for the sailing team did not have a sailing background.
"I saw a need for an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand book for these beginning sailors," Freedman says. "My goal is to make sailing a successful venture not only for the team or club, but for each student wanting to sail."
Besides being a how-to for sailing terms and techniques for the Club Flying Junior sailboat in particular the book provides information on organizing a sailing team/club, fund-raising, recruiting boosters, branding and promotion.
In 1990, Freedman organized the Betsy Ross America’s Cup campaign as a potential defender of the 1992 America’s Cup in San Diego. He also competed in the Olympic Sailing Trials in the Star Class in 1988.
A native of Pasadena, California, and a former airline pilot, he spent his summers as a youth sailing at Newport Beach.
"College Sailing Made Easy will give the reader a good foundation for going to the next level of sailing," Freedman says.
The book may purchased online at www.CollegeSailingMadeEasy.com and Amazon.
The book was edited by Larry Edwards, who also facilitated publication of the sailing guide.
Edwards, who established the book/ebook service Wigeon Publishing, has facilitated the publication of a number of book and ebooks for independent authors.
