This book will teach you to be a good skipper.

It is in three parts: preparation, handling the boat and passage planning. To begin with you will learn about the role of the skipper: how to manage the boat and crew, weather forecasting and emergencies. In Part 2 – boat handling – you will learn about handling under sail and power, berthing and anchoring. The final section covers making a passage, teaching you about planning, navigation and pilotage, and coping with heavy weather conditions.

This guide will make your cruising safer, more efficient and more enjoyable.
