Sailing beyond sight of land requires a confident skipper, seaworthy vessel and a competent crew able to cope with any eventuality at sea. THE YACHTING HANDBOOK covers everything you need to know about cruising, from selecting the right boat to deciding what sails to carry; it gives tips on choosing crew, bareboat chartering and how to prepare for a long voyage. Comprehensive coverage of seamanship, communications, coping with bad weather, emergency situations and anchoring procedures provides all the practical information you will need. A section on popular cruising destinations gives a taste of where to go and there is a short chapter on longdistance races open to cruising yachts. Supported by high-quality photography and detailed illustrations, THE YACHTING HANDBOOK reinforces the many positive aspects of cruising as an alternative way of life.
