5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 7 July 2012

This review is from: Manoeuvring: At Close Quarters Under Power (Spiral-bound)
This book should be compulsory on the inventory of every yacht. This little bible of close quarter manoeuvring is well presented, laid out, and illustrated - it's handy A5 size also makes it ideal for packing in your hand baggage and won't clutter up the cockpit. The opening section provides a clear and simple guide to all the forces that act on a yacht, explaining why boats behave as they do; I would recommend this as essential reading for anyone about to undertake a yachting course from day-skipper up. Speaking as a yacht-master who currently charters maybe 2-3 weeks a year, this manual is a real confidence-booster when bringing in an unfamiliar yacht in tricky conditions. Whilst you can obviously put a price on scraping your bower anchor down the topsides of your neighbour, what value can you put on the satisfaction of berthing your yacht first time in front of a baying crowd of onlookers? Priceless!
