This book covers the practical syllabus a student skipper needs if they are to pass advanced sailing exams. It is also designed to be kept on board as a coaching guide covering common situations that may trip up even the most experienced yacht skipper. It covers the practical side of yacht cruising: how to be a better skipper, berth the yacht, handle her under sail, recover a man overboard, navigate and carry out safe and efficient passages.
Illustrated with charts and diagrams, and including revision and test sections, this is perfect both as an on-board reference and to be used as exam preparation.
