A real gem
on 21 September 2007
This amazing little book has seen me through Day Skipper, Yachtmaster, Tall Ships Races, night sailing, keelboat racing and cruising all over Europe. It taught me and I have used it to teach others. I have never gone sailing without it, even though I can now practically visualise every page!
This is at least partly because it is so small and handy - why wouldn't you take it with you when it is compact enough to fit in your oilskins pocket? It is also a truly unique and invaluable synthesis of the most essential and useful information on sailing, navigation tides and weather.
For those who are confident they know it all, this is still a great book to have on board as it's pictures and user-friendly style make it great for teaching novices. All this for less than the price of a plate of chips in the yacht club!
