The book explains in simple words and photo sequences, how to handle a yacht under sail and power. This is an ideal book for the less experienced who may be studying for the RYA Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper practical courses

About the Author

Bill Anderson and Tom Cunliffe are both yacht owners of long standing. Over many years of sailing they have made most boat handling mistakes, and now pass on their knowledge of how to avoid them.

A great book, that really makes manoevering a boat a simple task, even for inexperienced helmsmen like myself!
As mentioned, it is only applicable for yachts, but it is totally practical and well thought through.

95 pages, that's all! Not a word to much.
I would like to have had more of them both, Bill Anderson and Tom Cunliffe,
but the book doesn't need that.
Lovely to read.
After 50 years of sailing, I nearly started before I was born :-) ,
this is the most concentrated book about sailing I met.
If I onlycould to bring one book onboard, this would be it.
It seems impossible, but for 'everyone' this little book, BTW it's not so little, just thin, contains what every sailor should know.
If you know everything in the book and can handle it, you can sail where ever you want!

About the bike, I as Tom happens to like bikes, especially vintage, and he has recently managed to get a BSA Rocket from 1957.
All sailors loves the wind and that goes for all bikers too!
Without wind you would not go out sailing, and it's the feel for the wind that makes you go for a ride with your bike!

Just buy it, you re-read it many times!

Don't make the mistake I did. I was looking for a book on motor boat handling, and bought this book (from RYA online bookshop) on the title alone. The book talks only about sailing boats - under sail and motorsailing. There is nothing about power boats in here. The description above makes this clear - I wish I had seen it first. Can't comment on the book - no experience of sail.
