This newly-completed CD Rom is a complete historical treatise on the world of Victorian yachting. 483 pages long, it features sections on yacht racing, cruising, rules of the road, yacht handling, yachting history, etc. It even includes construction details for building a 20-foot lapstrake daysailer. Very interesting historical reading.

Magazine Articles

Here's a list of sailing magazine articles written by Brian Gilbert

We have lots of other ideas in the works. Several magazine articles by Brian Gilbert are currently in development, look for them in Good Old Boat magazine and DIY Boatowner. We're also exploring several ideas, including cruising and chartering destination videos with Mark Kennedy of Kennedy Video Services in Charleston, SC. Check this website for more information, available soon. Another possibility is a visual tour of some of the more commonly available used sailboats on the market today. We welcome your thoughts about these projects, as well as suggestions for improvements or additional resources... send me an email!
