The Complete Yachtmaster has been a bestseller since first publication and has established itself as the standard reference for Yachtmaster students as well as skippers of all levels of experience.

In this fully revised eighth edition, Tom Cunliffe brings together all the essentials of modern cruising in one volume. Subjects include an analysis of what makes a good skipper, the theory and practice of sailing, seamanship, navigation including chart plotters and PCs, meteorology, heavy weather, yacht stability and coping with emergencies.

Substantial updates for this edition include new material on navigation using tablets. Also includes new photography throughout.

The Complete Yachtmaster promotes each subject as an integral part of the whole. It guides examination candidates as authoritatively and reassuringly through the RYA syllabus as a sea pilot bringing a ship to harbour. Required reading for all skippers whether on board or in the classroom.

Review:

“Required reading for skippers whether on board or in the classroom.” ―Yachting Life

“Brings together all the essentials of modern cruising in one volume, and ensures that this time-tested book will continue to be the foundation for navigators, skippers and anyone undertaking coastal and offshore passages.” ―All at Sea

“The absolute bible for anyone intending to go to sea in boats.” ―stainesnews.co.uk

“No other book explains every facet of sailing as comprehensively . . . any boat would be better equipped with this book aboard.” ―Yachting Monthly

“Excellent, a must for the library and winter reading.” ―Compass Magazine

“Contains everything you need to know about the theory and practice of sailing.” ―Surrey Herald

“An ideal gift to give to the aspiring sailor to ensure the challenges ahead are properly understood.” ―Nautical Magazine

“These are new editions of well-established books essentially addressing the RYA Yachtmaster offshore qualification. Both books are beautifully produced with excellent diagrams and illustrations in full colour and seem to me to cover the syllabus comprehensively and well.” ―The Little Ship

“As in most Adlard Coles publications it also almost goes without saying that the presentation--text, graphics, pictures--is superb.” ―Sailing For Southern Africa

“A gem, distilled from decades of experience.” ―Yachting Monthly

“Cunliffe's competence and authority radiate from the pages . . . thoroughly recommended.” ―Little Ship Club

“There are all too few authors who not only know their subject but can write well about it. Tom Cunliffe is one.” ―Cruising

“In this fully revised eighth edition, international expert and author, Tom Cunliffe, brings together all the essentials of modern cruising in one volume.” ―Yachting Times Magazine

“An essential read for anyone contemplating making a coastal or off-shore passage.” ―WindCheck Magazine
