Editorial Reviews

Sailing and Yachting
... one of the most widely-read guides for anyone planning to cross the oceans.
The Charleston Daily News
This encyclopedic volume has become a standard reference for bluewater sailors.
Howard's substantial guide to bluewater sailing has been revised by Doane, editor of Magazine. The book's first part describes the boat, with discussion of how to build or buy a boat, how to choose the rig, construction materials, and the layout of the deck, cockpit and cabin. Subsequent sections discuss topics with similar thoroughness and include coverage of systems and equipment; the voyage (e.g. trip planning, provisioning, psychological aspects of cruising, routine at sea); activities in port (e.g. heavy weather procedures, maintenance and repairs, security). Fourteen useful appendices are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
