The book we recommend to our Readers is an extraordinary monograph concerning sea sailing. The Author’s perfect knowledge of that field, evidenced by his mastering of literature and extensive practical experience, yields a very remarkable outcome. What we get is a work quite innovative in the Polish, and even in the global market, putting the knowledge abot sea sailing in order and enriching it with a great deal of new facts and ideas, with an evident emphasis upon sea-sailing tourism.


The work consists of fifteen chapters which together make up a logical whole, describing in a systematic manner contemporary sea-sailing tourism in its many aspects. The first two chapters contain an analysis of the very notion of sailing tourism, including its scope and relations with other forms of sea tourism and active tourism in general. Discussion of the subject results in a proposal for a definition of sea-sailing tourism which then provides the basis for further considerations. Chapter three contains a typological description of sailors seen as protagonists of that form of tourist activity. Subsequent chapters discuss natural as well as historical and cultural, as well as socio-economic prerequisites for the development of sea-sailing tourism. Then the Author’s focus shifts to spatial aspects of sea-sailing tourism. This part of the book presents the key global basins (with particular emphasis upon the Baltic Sea) which present especially advantageous conditions for the development of sea-sailing tourism. Also discussed are the principal routes of sea-sailing tourism in oceans, on either intercontinental or global scale. Next chapters present an outline of history of development of global yachting and of the Polish national sailing, taking into account local conditions and specificities of selected countries. Then, seaworthy yachts are presented and described, as is infrastructure essential for the craft of sailing; this discussion is used as a basis for an analysis of sailing-related products in tourism. Finally, a chapter dedicated to the spatial aspect of sea-sailing tourism contains a synthesis of all considerations about determinants of development of sea-sailing tourism. The book concludes with a part addressing the issue of formal skills and competences required and marine certificates, mainly from the point of view of the safety of sailing.
