SASC Books Vol 1 & 2

The two SASC books “The Amateurs” (CB) and “The Second Century Begins” (SC) have been digitised and can now be downloaded below.  An index for each book and a combined index has been created and is also below to assist with your use of the books.

Each index can be scrolled through to search for a member, boat or topic. When found it will show the page number and the Book Part Number Reference. The Book Part reference is needed as it has been necessary to split the books into a number of smaller sections to allow a manageable file size for downloading from the website.

As the documents are in PDF format, it is possible to search an index electronically. After selecting the “magnifying glass” icon,  enter a member or boat name in the “search box”. The matching index entry/s will be highlighted. If you need help to help to master this method, contact Fred Bevis.

Combined SASC Books Index.

The Combined Index file contains hyperlinks which link to “The Amateurs” and “The Second Century Begins” books. You can open the Combined Index PDF then use the “search” function to find the name of a member, boat or topic and select the hyperlink (last column) to take you directly to the book section then “search” it for the text of your interest.
