Ken J. Turner photoThis English-French dictionary of sailing terms may be useful to English speakers sailing in French-speaking waters. The dictionary follows British English, which may differ slightly in spelling and usage from other English-speaking countries. It is not claimed to be complete. The author would be grateful if any errors or omissions were notified to him. In alphabetical order, Steve Bottomley (electrical engineering terms), Ralph Bowsfield, Robert Campbell, Laurence Flory, Bernard Gagné, Lionel Grandin, Ronan Grandin, Malcolm Perrins (a big thank you!), Frank Singleton (weather terms), François Uguen, and Jean Vaury (a big thank you!) kindly commented on and contributed to the dictionary.

The dictionary represents independent work by the author over several years. There are other unconnected dictionaries:

  • A French-English Dictionary of Sailing has been published commercially by Josse Schoonheyt (Les Editions du Phare Ouest, PO Box 674, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada V3T 5L9).
  • The Marine Encyclopaedia provides English and French translations of sailing terms.
