Product Description

by Bill Anderson & Tom Cunliffe

This book will help you handle your yacht smoothly, safely and without fuss. It explains the principles needed to master each situation, letting you work with your yacht rather than against it.

You will discover how to asses your boat’s individual characteristics, how to read the wind and stream and how to recognise the impossible manoeuvre. You will also learn how to cope when the engine fails, when someone falls overboard, and other problems rear their ugly heads.

With diagrams and photographs to illustrate the principles, you will become adept at handling your boat under both sail and power.
