Overview

Day Skipper for Sail and Power is the major reference book for anyone following the RYA Day Skipper course. Right up to date with new developments and covering all the theory and practical aspects of the RYA Day Skipper Certificate with brand new photography and diagrams, it is also a clear and simple introduction to pilotage, navigation and general boatwork for anyone intending to make coastal passages in a small boat.

It covers: seamanship, safety equipment (including updated text on clothing, lifejackets and dinghies), preventing collisions at sea (with new material on AIS and radar reflectors), navigation and chart work, tides and tidal streams, pilotage, passage planning, weather, engine operation and maintenance, and the most up to date VHF radio procedures.

With its refreshingly practical approach and by the same author as the highly successful Yachtmaster for Sail and Power, no one intending to follow an RYA Day Skipper course whether for sail or power can afford to be without this lively, helpful guide to complement the course and assist with exam preparation. An accompanying Day Skipper Exercises for Sail and Power is available.
