This is the third volume of the Admiralty Manual of Seamanship - it is intended for officers. The book covers some essential seamanship knowledge like the handling of ships; it also contains some useful information on a variety of subjects that are not usually treated as advanced seamaship, e.g. aid to ships in distress. This Manual is divided in four parts covering ship knowledge and safety, seamanship, ship organisation, and the last part is dedicated to shiphandling and navigation.
