Mastering Navigation at Sea
To properly enjoy the sea, and to do so safely, you must have the skills, knowledge and confidence to plan thoroughly and stay one step ahead of the game.
This book is thoughtfully written to help yachtsmen do just that. It’s not another RYA Course Handbook it’s written by a mariner for other mariners.
It’s well-informed, easy to read and honest about the author’s triumphs and disasters over a lifetime’s navigating.
He has a unique perspective having navigated in many parts of the world from high up on the bridge of a warship, close to the water in a cruising yacht and at depth in a submarine.
After his navy career, he was Chief Executive of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), often dealing with the consequences of poor navigation.
The author brings the subject to life in a book that is designed to help yachtsmen refresh their knowledge of, and their enthusiasm for, the timeless skills of navigation.
It is packed with hundreds of illustrations colour photographs, charts, diagrams and tables making the text easy to understand.
The book is part of Fernhurst Books’ Skipper’s Library series of practical books for the cruising sailor.
