Review:

'Few yacht owners or students will want to be without this excellent work.' Nautical Magazine 'Suitable for all levels of sailor, this thorough and practical book brings together all the essentials of modern cruising in one volume.' Boat Mart (May 2006) 'The beauty of it is that in one book you have the "essential" knowledge from which to learn and to which to refer... Tom writes with an easy style that makes this a good book for the eager student and for the rusty sailor intending to stretch to new horizons. Highly recommended.' Multihull Review (September/October 2006) 'Competently covers all aspects of sailing, seamanship and navigation to Yachtmaster standard; it is clearly laid out and very well illustrated. This excellent book has a wider appeal than just to aspiring Yachtmasters; it is a good read which would be of benefit and interest to all.' The Little Ship (Winter 2006) 'A few evenings spent reading this book will deliver the equivalent of years of personal experience. I would highly recommend it.' Offshore News (Summer 2007)
