A thorough guide to having fun and staying safe on the water.
It is often only necessary to have a basic knowledge in order to voyage safely at sea. Illustrated Seamanship shows you the minimum number of techniques you should be familiar with - rope handling, manoeuvring and anchoring - in order to keep a boat safe and make cruising as enjoyable as possible for you and your crew.
Learning the traditional techniques is not only necessary but you will develop your skill through an interesting and fun way. Each technique is illustrated in Ivar Dedekam’s distinctive style, backed up with clear and simple text.
Illustrated Seamanship is split into three main sections:
· Rope work outlines the minimum level of knowledge of knots, hitches, splices amongst others
· Boat handling covers techniques for manoeuvring a yacht in harbours and confined spaces under various wind and sea conditions
· Anchoring includes techniques and anchoring examples
Uncover the art of managing a boat and learn get-you-home techniques.About the Author:
