The book was written by one of the most respected specialist in the field, the author of the famous and popular The Complete Yachtmaster. The publication is covering virtually everything that the yachtsmen shall be aware of when planning their ocean voyages and offshore cruise passages.
All core aspects have been addressed starting with the preparation to the voyage, where the readers will be told how to choose the proper and suitable boat and the rigging, power requirements and the necessary lifesaving appliances, communication devices, crew etc. Then the author proceeds to the activities on passage including but not limited to the forecasting and weather systems, emergency situations, deck job, watchkeeping and others.
In addition to that, the ocean navigation matters have also been dealt with in detail, covering both celestial navigation techniques and contemporary electronic navigation means. The book is somewhat unique, since the author goes well beyond the regular RYA syllabus to make sure that the trainees have been duly equipped with the good understanding of what they shall do in any situation, and how they shall behave. The whole practical experience of the veteran yachtsman has been reflected in the pages of this brilliant volume to be shared with the readers.
