“The Book of Sail” is a website to learn about some great cruising equipment, gadgets, useful ideas, and on occasion, some sailing wisdom. It’s a treasure trove of information for coastal cruisers or those sailing across oceans, for newbies or old salts. Many of Bill’s ideas can save you money, save your back, and make you more comfortable on the boat.

Author Bill Cullen, also known in some circles as “Captain Billy”, lives in Tampa, USA, and has been a professional captain and delivery skipper for 50 years. He was a yacht broker for a decade, and owned and restored two dozen sailboats. Having over 100,000 miles of offshore racing, cruising, and delivery experience that include duties as captain, navigator, cook, tactician, helmsman, repairman, and quite often “all of these at once”, Bill has accumulated a great deal of knowledge over the years which he now shares with other sailors via his website “The Book of Sail”.
