Sydney Hobart Race – Is there a Yiddish Sailing Manual? *Feature By John Curnow, , 4:21 PM Mon 30 Nov 2015 GMT
Honestly, I have no idea. Let alone if there are ones in Spanish, German or Mandarin. I expect so, and would fumble my way through all of those, in about the same order as that list is written. Declining degrees of accuracy are a given. No doubt they would cover off parts of the boat and sails, trimming, helming, weather and so on. ...

Sydney Hobart Race – the 628nm Windward/Leeward (Pt I) *Feature By John Curnow, , 5:18 AM Sat 28 Nov 2015 GMT

If you’re having a particularly bad time, the kite gear may even stay clipped to the rail ...
