This book is the most comprehensive, helpful and up to date guide ever written on selecting, equipping and sailing a cruising yacht. Destined to become the bible for prospective boat buyers and cruisers, whether coastal or world-girdling, it successfully covers all the technical and practical aspects of cruising yachts and systems in one unique book. Written by Nigel Calder, one of the most respected nautical how-to authors with extensive cruising experience and a rare ability to reduce complexities to simple explanations, this book shows the reader not only how to select and equip a yacht for coastal or offshore cruising, but also how to sail and navigate it, addressing the concerns of beginners and experienced owners alike. This is the book the cruising world has long been waiting for. There is, quite literally, nothing else like it.
