2nd ed. Today, yachts are often equipped with equipment that makes it possible to make long offshore passages without much knowledge of seamanship. However, more and more yachts require assistance, even when they should be able to reach harbour on their own. In this book you will be shown the traditional techniques you should be familiar with, regarding rope handling, manoeuvring and anchoring, in order to make long or short passages safely. Each element is clearly explained alongside detailed colour illustrations, combining to make a straightforward and easy-to-follow guide.
