Overview

Following in the Yachting Monthly paperback series (Confessions, Further Confessions, etc) this book is based on a popular run of articles over the last eight years in Yachting Monthly, in which navigational and seamanship problems are posed and the highly respected author (former RYA Training Manager Bill Anderson) gives his opinion on the best way to resolve them. And if there are several options, he airs them all.

The question and answer format is an ideal way for readers to absorb, in a very practical way, good seamanship lessons arising from a whole range of boating problems which have all occurred in real life.

This accessible paperback is entertaining, non-preachy and non-textbook, and the invaluable advice is helped along with lively colour photos, maps and diagrams.
