Many reasonably experienced coastal sailors (and motorboaters) find the
prospect of sailing their boat to the continent appealing yet daunting.
There are so many additional aspects that all need to be taken into
account and complied with that it can seem a forbidding prospect. This
highly illustrated, accessible and user friendly book takes the boater
though all the appropriate aspects in a hand-holding fashion, to dispel
the mystique, and present the undertaking as one that is eminently
achievable by anyone with basic boat-handling skills and navigational
knowledge.

Topics
covered : Navigation, Tides, Planning, Crew briefing, Safety
information, Man Overboard drills, Obtaining weather information,
Watchkeeping, Provisioning, Engine checks, Bureaucracy and form filling
and much more.

With this book to hand, both skipper and crew
will be well prepared to tackle all aspects of taking their own boat to
foreign waters for what should be a hugely enjoyable and rewarding
experience!

About the Author:

Barry Pickthall was for many years the Yachting Correspondent for The Times and a prolific author and columnist. He has sailed for many years aboard other people's boats but had never skippered his own boat across to Continental Europe. His first time was an eye-opener and this book is his account of the journey.

Review:

"The author is an experienced writer, including having been the Yachtng correspondent for the Times...A practical handy addition to the library of those contemplating their first overseas cruise. It should be well received and be an excellent present."—Nautical Magazine
