The Complete Yachtmaster
Sailing, Seamanship And Navigation For The Modern Yacht SkipperBook - 1997 | 2nd ed
This guide begins with an introductory chapter analyzing the make-up of a good skipper, which also explains the theory and practice of sailing. Seamanship follows, together with a navigation section, which examines the relationship between traditional and modern methods of navigation, including the new chart forms and radar. The elements of meteorology are succinctly set out, emergencies are foreseen and there is an everyday guide to the otherwise obscure science of yacht stability.
