For so many years this handbook has been deservedly treated as maybe the simplest and for sure one of the most practical guidebooks for the sailors. We are offering you to have a look at this latest, significantly updated and revised edition of the world popular publication. The content of the present volume has been thoroughly reworked in order to reflect all technical developments in the field of marine navigation.

For example, the author has included valuable information about the electronic means of positioning and communication widely used on board any ship. In addition, such areas as the radio telephone communications have also been duly covered and provided with good explanations and descriptions of every appliance. The text is very thorough and easy-to-read, and it covers literally all topics related to the coastal piloting as well as the ocean navigation.

The information is presented in a step by step manner making understanding of the material much easier. The book will be simple to read even for the beginners – note, however, that the amount of the information covered will make it equally useful even for the most advanced and professional navigators including yachtsmen, mariners and all seamen.
