Format: Paperback
‘Coastal and Offshore Navigation’ is an excellent insight into safe passage planning and navigation. I have cruised extensively using nothing more than the techniques explained in this book. I must admit I did know how to navigate quite well before reading this book but this is a very useful book to refer back to when you have forgotten how to interpolate on the first outing of the new season!
Tom Cunliffe writes in an easy to understand manner and I found reading this book to be a pleasure rather than a head scratching exercise.
I would like to give you more detail on chapters, topics covered etc, but my copy resides in the bookcase over the chart table! Well worth reading. Buy.

Format: Paperback
I learnt to sail in the 70s, when GP and S were just three letters in the alphabet, and all you had on a yacht were a compass, a chart, and if you were lucky, one of them new-fangled depth-thingies!
Now retired and looking to do more sailing, I thought I needed to refresh and catch-up, navigation-wise, so I would at least know what the electronics were capable of.
This volume is in Tom's usual laid-back style, loads of common sense, easy to read and, most of all, easy to assimilate.I disagree with a previous reviewer in that I feel it is written in a way that would suit out-and-out beginners, as well as more experienced sailors!
I do, however, have a couple of gripes, and these are aimed at the publishers rather than the author!
Firstly, I have just spent some considerable time reading and re-reading a couple of pages, getting less and less confident about my own sanity, because the passage tells of 'what to do if.....', and the solution is incorrect! Proof-reading? Type-setting? One or the other implies that Mr Cunliffe's basic arithmetic is awry. My copy is a Third Edition, so I find it hard to believe that no-one has alerted Wiley Nautical? I may do so myself, and join the ranks of the Grumpy Old Men.
And while I'm at it, I can mention my second gripe! How can an instruction book, as accomplished as this one is, justify having no index? Coming across a technical term, and wanting to re-affirm my understanding of it, I turn to the back to look up the index, and find nothing but a few blank pages!I actually had to look the term up in another volume!

Again this guy has come up with yet another mini masterpiece...This is my third Tom Cunliffe book and as always it follows in the same vane...
Lots of nice glossy pictures...stuffed with interesting info...and as always the humour although he does seem to have a worryning need to make landfall and berth before last orders :)
I do strongly recommend this book as it is enjoyable and easy reading and fun

Very clear and easy to follow. Definitely a great book and excellent value for money. If you are a boater of any sort from Inflatables, Ribs or Yachts and have an interest in navigation, coastal or offshore, this is definitely a "must read" book. I had absolutely no background in navigation prior to reading this book but I would now feel confident to plot out a short coastal journey from one town to another, taking all of the recommended safety aspects into consideration of course. The book uses a lot of very clear coloured illustrations to explain in great detail on how exactly to plot and achieve your planned journey. There is fantastic coverage of the "Rules Of The Road", coastal markings, buoys, signage etc. Tom also covers electronic navigation aids and chart plotters. This is definitely a great book for both the amateurs and pros. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in navigation.
