This handbook was prepared by Nigel Calder together with some co-authors (Richard Clinchy from USCG, Bill Gladstone from North Sails, Peter Nielsen from The Sails Magazine, and others) who are all leading experts, with the intention to provide all readers with comprehensive info related to the handling of boats, navigation and seamanship. Each of pages in this book has been designed for the max efficiency and easiest use. The readers will get to know how to handle the boat under power, how to use nautical charts, global positioning systems, VHF and SSB radios, what is sail trim and rig turning, how to make knots and splices, how to care and repair diesel engines, learn the basics of anchoring and heavy weather sailing etc. Particular attention has been given by the authors to the emergency and first aid on board. One of the main advantages of this book is that it can provide readers with all necessary answers to any questions that may arise, very easy and fast. In fact, almost every chapter of this publication (except the third one addressing the nautical charts) may be used as a stand-alone Guide. We are pretty sure that this interesting and useful handbook will make the boater's time on the water safer, more rewarding and enjoyable.
