From the Publisher
Enjoy big boat racing on a small scale! Paper Yachts shows you how to create miniature imitations of four classes of the most competitive yachts on the planet—from the larger International America’s Cup craft to the small and nimble Extreme 40s.
Captain your own vessel with sixteen water resistant templates that allow you to test your personal watercraft in the tub, down the stream, or in the ocean. Detailed instructions and illustrations help you fold and launch each sailboat, and specially designed courses set you up for some serious match racing or a mixed class regatta.
Loaded with gorgeous photos and nautical trivia, Paper Yachts is more than origami, it’s the excitement of sailing at your fingertips. So weigh anchor, cast off, and be an admiral of the sea for a day.
