Synopsis:

'You will venture into the fringes of the wilderness with the minimum of simple gear, to live with it on its own terms. You will know that one of the sure ways to contentment in this life is a small boat, a fair wind, and a new coast to explore.'

Dinghy cruising is a wonderful way to experience nature and new coastlines at close quarters and low cost. Sailing where larger boats cannot reach, and sleeping under canvas onboard or ashore, this is boating taken right back to the basics, and all the better for that. This guide, for all aspiring or already-enthusiastic dinghy cruisers, shows how to get started and how to expand your horizons.

The information and advice is interwoven with wonderfully evocative stories of the author's adventures afloat, from idyllic weeks pottering around secluded rivers and coastlines to hair-raising voyages to remote islands. The text covers:

Finding a good boat
Fitting out for daysailing
Boatcraft under engine and oar
Mooring and anchoring
Preparing for open water
Out at sea
Coastal navigation
Dinghy homemaking
Keeping comfortable and safe

Illustrated throughout with inspirational colour photos and helpful illustrations, this book shows just why small boats are the perfect passport to remote and beautiful places.

About the Author:

Roger Barnes is President of the Dinghy Cruising Association, and lives out his passion year round, exploring beautiful and remote places in his dinghy Avel Dro. For many years, he had a monthly column in Dinghy Sailing Magazine, and he also writes for Classic Boat and Watercraft.
