About the Author

Bo Streiffert is a Swedish yachtsman with 50 years varied sailing experience including time spent in the Royal Swedish Navy as a navigation officer on torpedo boats. It was while he was an instructor on training ships, when still in his 20s, that he came up with the idea of the Skipper's Cockpit Guide and produced the first outline in a booklet which he used to teach the young people on his courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2 Mar 2005
Format:Paperback
What can I say? Well I can say that almost everything you will need for basic navigation is contained in this little book.
This is the type of book that you will have on board and will probably be flicking thru eventhough you know everything that is in it. Somehow it condenses all the essentials you need to know and exactly those that you need to revise for your boating/yachting journeys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skippers cockpit guide 13 Feb 2009
Format:Spiral-bound
Very compact,well illustrated, contains a lot of information on 'memory intensive' data,eg. signals, ship recognition by lights. Should provide a handy reference in respect of this.
Some other subjects covered provide basic learning material for non competant crew and may provide valuable revision for a experienced skipper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Nov 2009
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Excellent guide. You would not believe the amount of information that is presented concisely and clearly in so few pages. Great for reference, and excellent for budding day skippers and comp crew to browse through whilst lounging in the saloon.

3.0 out of 5 stars good try 7 May 2012
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This "guide" is a very good idea.
But I agree with M.North: too much detail in too small prints.
I would also add that it is not really splash proof as advertised.
Pages need to be properly plastified before taking the guide aboard.

Just the thing for keeping on the chart table ... comprehensive but easy to find details of those things you sometimes wonder about, eg rights of way/colregs or maybe lights ... well priced and nicely presented ... 100% A1.

The skipper books were a Christmas Gift for a friend and arrived earlier than expected and in good order. I already had the books and therefore knew how useful they are for anyone starting and after completing your Day Skipper qualification. A great aid. Happy sailing.
