   Before the satellite navigation, electronic navigation charts and radars have been invented, people had to get to the art of seamanship only through their practical experience, and subject experience could be either bad or good. They gained practice and improved their boat handling together with the ability for proper and timely reaction to the changes in various situations, and this kept them safe and allowed to get to the destination port. Nowadays, the boats carry GPS plus lots of other electronic devices. This eventually resulted in a slow loss of the essential seamanship skills that were developed over thousands of years. Contemporary boat electronics are deservedly treated as a really wonderful step forward; however, they shall not be considered a full substitute for the seamanship. The book covers nearly thousand of topics and more than eight hundred detailed and informative illustrations - in fact, this is a very detailed and thorough publication, maybe the best one available. The readers will definitely get inspired with the depth of the information provided in this publication, covering literally everything from preparation to actual boat handling at sea and working on the deck. Extensive technical information has been provided with regard to the tropical sailing as well as cruising in iced sea conditions.
