Can anyone recommend a basic sailing book in French? Like the Comp crew or Day Skipper book. I'm asking as I have a new crew joining who's French and I'd like to get her a running start/basic understanding before she joins the boat. Something avaliable as a pdf would be ideal as deliveries take a while....

I can recommend a crime thriller called The Normandy Run, set in France and containing a lot of sailing, but it won't teach a French person to sail. On the other hand, if you want to wile away a few hours of lockdown, Google can tell you more.

BLOC Marine (French Reeds Almanac type) is available to download, in French or English, it has lots of educational pictures and explanations including parts of the boat, points of sail, glossary and English-French-German translations etc all sorts.
You could maybe even send it to her iPad or whatever?
