Overview

This is a unique, practical, hands-on guide to boat manoeuvring.



Manoeuvring a yacht under engine at close quarters in a marine of close
to other (expensive!) boats can be a daunting prospect for the
inexperienced skipper - but it has to be done in order to take your
boat off a pontoon to go sailing, and to berth her after a day on the
water. Throw in fast flowing tides, and wind which might blow from the
bow or beam or stern, and the exercise becomes even more of a lottery -
even for the experienced boat handler.



Here at last is a well organised visual guide to coping in every
possible combination of wind and tide. Laid out in a very clear
fashion, with one manoeuvre per page and in a handy wiro format, this
is the ideal teach yourself guide, and the perfect on-board aide
memoire. It will be a godsend to every nervous helmsman, and a good
talking point for crew!
