What Now Skipper - Test Your Navigation and Seamanship Skills and Learn from Expert Answers

   Nick doesn't like fore and aft mooring buoys. He finds them difficult to pick up and, once secured, they seem to put veiy heavy loads on the mooring lines, particularly with the tidal stream from astern and a crosswind. Having read in the sailing directions that the only mooring option in Chausey Sound was between fore and aft buoys, he was thinking about giving up the plan for an overnight visit to the islands southeast of Jersey. His crew had heard that this was a magical place though, and persuaded him that, as it was neap tides and no more than a Force 4-5 forecast, it would be a shame to pass them by. As it turned out, there was plenty of room on the moorings and, with the help of smart work from the crew, Nick picked up a suitable pair of buoys without a problem. The wind had been light when they arrived and dropped to nothing overnight so his worry about strain on the deck cleats and mooring lines was ill-founded. The following day he planned to leave through the shallow northern end of the Sound, which meant waiting until mid-afternoon for sufficient rise of tide and a favourable stream. By lunch the wind had built to the promised Force 4-5 from the northeast, right abeam, and the heavy warp risers from the buoys were leading to windward at quite a shallow angle...

yachts and yachting
   The element of Design is a most important factor in all good work, and nothing is more essential in all Construction than that there shall first be Design, which simply means that every necessary detail shall be reviewed, put on paper, and approved before the materials necessary for the contemplated work are touched. Design is especially necessary even in the most elementary forms of Naval architecture, as when the lines of a boat are laid down on paper, not only is the form of the intended craft more clearly seen, but an opportunity is afforded for correcting and altering any details which are shown by the drawings to be detrimental to the success of the boat designed.

Heavy Weather Sailing
   'Any fool can carry sail on a ship—" burst out the master, indignant at the officer of the watch failing to order sail to be shortened. But the words were spoken a century ago in the Golden Age of seafaring before mechanical propulsion drove sail from the face of the great oceans. Indeed, the shipmaster often found himself between the devil and the deep blue sea. On the one hand, his owners expected as fast a passage as the ship was capable of; on the other, a voyage account which included a long list of items of heavy weather damage— spars, sails and cordage carried away—was likely to incur the owners' displeasure and they were often not slow to make the master aware of it. Yet one cannot fail to draw inspiration from their achievements in an age when radio, weather forecasts and all the other aids to the safe conduct of a vessel of today were unknown. Of course, the sea exacted its toll and there were casualties. Ships were posted overdue and later, after weeks of anxiety, as lost without trace. All too often the reason for their being overwhelmed remained a matter for conjecture. The middle decades of the present century have seen the regeneration of sail and its reappearance on the oceans is now commonplace. The great square-rigger of yesterday with its towering masts and spread of canvas and a ship's company of two score men or more has given way to tiny vessels, some with less canvas than would make a belltent and manned by only four or five souls and often fewer. Although for the most part they are amateur sailors, they are the living heirs to a noble tradition of sail, and it therefore behoves them to acquire the skills of a seaman in order to be worthy of their inheritance. It is true that science and the ingenuity of man have made great advances. Our knowledge of the behaviour patterns of wind and sea has increased immeasurably and with it the means of placing this knowledge at the disposal of the seafarer a thousand miles or more from the land. But still the might of wind and sea remains unsubdued, ready to exact a toll of those who treat them lightly.

Fast Track to Sailing - Learn to Sail in Three Days
   This book by Steve and Doris Colgate is the culmination of years of development through their introductory sailing program. Second, one of their excellent licensed and certified instructors explains sailing in a series of classroom sessions to reinforce the book. Most important, the new sailor sets sail for comprehensive sessions on the Colgate 26 sailboat, which was designed by Steve specifically for sail training. At the end of the course, the participant sails without an instructor, gaining the confidence that comes from handling a 26-foot sailboat with other new sailors. We heartily recommend Fast Track to Sailing to anyone interested in taking the first steps to a new and wonderful lifestyle. Learn with a good foundation and you will enjoy sailing forever. Learn it right the first time and the rewards are incredible—and this book teaches it right. Sailing is one of the most environmentally responsible sports you can ever aspire to. Its carbon footprint is virtually invisible. The ultimate goal of many sailors is to go cruising. To help achieve that goal, we wrote the book Fast Track to Cruising in 2005. Because some sailors prefer to sail close to home on small to midsize sailboats, we present here an easy to read, colorful stand-alone book for the new sailor called Fast Track to Sailing. You are about to embark on a most rewarding adventure, taking you from the desire to learn how to sail to ready to sail in easy, logical steps. We have always been strong proponents of learning the right way the first time. When I started Offshore Sailing School in 1964, I realized I was encapsulating over twenty years of intense sailing knowledge into three or four days of training. In that short time, if you absorb everything —that is, everything this book—you will gain a sailing foundation that will last a lifetime. The knowledge and methods herein give you the insight and understanding to build sailing confidence and skills. You will learn why you are doing something, not just how to do it. The text and illustrations provide everything you need to know to be a competent sailor. At the end of each chapter you are encouraged to test what you learned.

sailing for dummies
   In this book, you can find all the information you need to go sailing. This book is a textbook, user's manual, and reference book all in one. We start with basic sailing skills and move on to cover more advanced topics for when you widen your horizons to activities such as chartering a boat and going cruising. You get to practice tying knots, and we talk about what to wear on a boat. (You can skip the blue blazer and captain's hat, but soft-soled shoes are a must.) You find out how to sail such diverse crafts as a sailboard and a catamaran, how to forecast the weather, and how to find a boat that's right for you. You even discover the basics of sailboat racing. We cover all you need to know to be safe on the water, and we make the whole process easy and fun! Have you ever listened in on the conversation of two sailors? Sailing has so many specific words that sailors can sound like they're speaking a foreign language. But don't let the jargon turn you off. The language of sailing has an old and rich tradition, and as you become more comfortable in a sailboat, you gradually pick up more and more of the language and become a part of the sailing tradition yourself. In this book, we try to avoid sailing jargon as much as possible, but we can't get around it completely because some of the terms are very important for safety. When the skipper plans a maneuver that requires a coordinated crew effort, using and understanding the exact sailing term allows everyone on the boat to know what's happening and what to do.

Yacht Design According to Perry
   In 1972, when I was 26 years old, I received my first published design review, a full-page critique of a 47-foot ketch in National Fisherman magazine. That review led to my first design commission, which ultimately became the CT 54, a story told in this book. That was 380 designs and more than 6,000 launched boats ago. When my Seattle office opened in 1974, my boyhood dream became a reality. From that point on, my hobby was my occupation. So far it has been a good ride. I've weathered a few squalls along the way, but when I survey my collection of designs, I'm proud of my productivity and durability.

the complete yachtmaster
 
   There are two groups of specialist sailing texts. One deals with matters such as navigation, boat handling and meteorology, with which every skipper must have more than a nodding acquaintance. The other caters for the ever-enlarging number of subjects relating less directly to the essence of moving a yacht safely from one location to another. The volume you are about to read is designed specifically for skippers and potential skippers. Its purpose is to gather together all those vital areas of expertise to be found in the first group of books, place them in a systematic order between two covers, and discuss them in a practical way. The book should therefore not only prove useful as a companion to a sailing course, either hands-on or theoretical, but will also provide a long-term work of reference for the boat's bookshelf. I make no claim that The Complete Yachtmaster is the only work you will require in order to take charge of a yacht on a round-the-world voyage. Certain items, such as the use of radio communications, require a specialist volume in their own right, and it is not insignificant that teaching the VHF syllabus is a separate subject in most mainstream training systems.

Principles of Yacht Design
 
   During the past thirty years yachting has expanded from being,a minority sport into a major recreational activity practised by millions all over the world. In the 1960s, many attractive coastal areas were still relatively free from pleasure boats; today it can be difficult to find a suitable mooring place for the night. The interest in racing has increased correspondingly at all levels, from dinghy racing to the America's Cup and around the world races.
