To create some examples, I have delineated some areas of possible interest in Table One. In the last column, I show how the Bibliography could be utilised to provide the relevant information.
Note: If going across Time Periods, many texts will occur more than once. As mentioned, a centenary history of a yacht club founded in 1894 will have entries for 5 time periods (1875-1918; 1919-1945; 1946-1965;1966-1985;1986 -)

Table One: Various subgenres of yachting literature, their period of activity, major exponents, reasons for researching, and how to access the relevant records.
Note: Numbers in brackets relate to records available at 18 October, 2011. They will be added to over time
