The aim of this book is to enable novices to cruise safely and enjoyably. It will cover the preparations needed before undertaking a cruise, operating the boat under different and sometimes challenging conditions, how to cope when things go wrong, how to conform to the rules and regulations, and how to navigate. It conveys the advice and information just as the cruiser will encounter it on passage - from setting off to arriving at their destination (rather than compartmentalised into navigation/weather/engine etc). Topics include: Preparing to cruise (weather forecasts, route planning, checklists); Leaving harbour (harbour entrances, radio contact, setting courses and speeds, crew briefing, food and drink); Assessing weather and sea conditions (fine tuning plans); Watch keeping under way (visual and electronic navigation, coping with alarms); Entering harbour (planning ahead, radio channels, finding an anchorage, speeds); Cruising at night and in fog (lights, radar, shipping lanes, stopping distance); Adventurous cruising (navigating inshore, beach landing, hidden dangers); Fuel management and economy (economical speeds, boat trim, reserves); Comfort on board (cooking and sleeping at sea, security); When things go wrong (potential problems, safety equipment, coping with fire, leaks, grounding, engine problems, calling for help); Rules and regulations (collision regulations, traffic lanes, going foreign, qualifications). Aimed at owners of powerboats and motor cruisers between 25 and 65ft, the book will be entirely practical, with checklists, sidebars and box-outs and many diagrams and photos.

The navigator of a slow boat can afford to be relatively relaxed; if things go wrong, they usually do so slowly, allowing time to adapt to changing circumstances. Navigating motor boats, on the other hand, combines a motion that often makes it difficult to read and write with a rapid progress that makes fixes obsolete before they're even implemented. Unlike traditional navigation texts written for boats traveling at 25 knots or less, this book is designed specifically for navigators of faster motor boats. Explained in detail are considerations such as compasses and charts, tidal atlases, navigational aids, safe landfall, planning a passage, and tips for thinking on your feet.

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.

Wind, waves, weather, and water demand the practiced art of seamanship "Planning and reacting to the unanticipated are the flip sides of seamanship. This blending of pre-voyage preparedness with effective on-the-water response is learned rather than inherent--together they define the art of seamanship." -- Author RALPH NARANJO Each time a sailboat casts off its docklines the sailor enters a marine realm that demands knowledge, preparedness, vigilance, and coolheadedness--these qualities are the foundation of good seamanship. Both an art as well as a science, seamanship is also the mastery of numerous practical details, from the best choice of line for a jib sheet to an accurate assessment of the passage of a deep low-pressure system. Around-the-world sailor Ralph Naranjo--technical expert, ocean racer, former Vanderstar Chair at the U.S. Naval Academy--delivers a priceless reference for anything that comes up while on the water, sharing all the knowledge today's sailors need to "hand, reef, and steer"--an enduring reference to the collective skills of the bluewater sailor. Naranjo's vast knowledge is supported by real-life examples of sailing mishaps, sample itineraries, vibrant photos, as well as first-hand accounts and sidebars from top sailors and marine experts, including Shelia McCurdy, Chuck Hawley, Lee Chesneau, and Paul Miller, N.A. Seamanship is a dynamic art, demanding full attention from the sailor amidst a constant flow of information and knowledge. The Art of Seamanship will improve your problem-solving skills, whether daysailing around the harbor or voyaging around the world. You'll learn: The attributes of a good skipper and crew—including physical and mental agility, effective communication, and knowledge-based decision making Fine-tuning your voyaging with the seaworthiness of your boat and the capability of your crew in mind Using weather information and routing resources to lower risks and raise rewards Developing advanced boat-handling skills—including heaving-to, towing a drogue, reefing, setting storm sails, and kedging Lines, line handling, and rigging--making sure the right strings are attached, including an in-depth look at modern rope construction Anchoring--the art of staying put--with a realistic look at tackle from lunch hooks to storm anchors Sails, modern sail material, sail trim, sail handling, and hardware, from hanked-on headsails to the latest top-down furlers Navigating in the satellite age, including paper and digital chartplotting, how to best use the new equipment, plus understanding the role of celestial navigation as a fail-safe Sailboat design and dynamics, including the role of vessel structure and stability and a look at what your current boat has to offer and what to look for in a new boat Sharing crowded waters and understanding the reasons behind the "rules of the road" How to be ready for any emergency, including fire, crew overboard, a flooding bilge, or the need to abandon ship Establishing reliable communication, including VHF, AIS, SSB, satellite phones, and beacon signaling (EPIRBS, PLBS)

Ein Klassiker über ein zeitlos spannendes Abenteurerschicksal Im Juli 1969 wird mitten im Atlantik eine Jacht entdeckt – die Segel sind gesetzt, aber der Trimaran ist leer. Nur die Log- und Tagebücher befinden sich noch an Bord und offenbaren ein dunkles Geheimnis. Ihr Verfasser Donald Crowhurst war acht Monate zuvor aufgebrochen, um im Wettstreit mit namhaften Seglern wie Robin Knox-Johnston und Bernard Moitessier als schnellster Solosegler nonstop die Welt zu umrunden. Was damals kaum jemand wusste: Crowhurst verfügte weder über Hochseeerfahrung noch über ein seetaugliches Boot. Doch warum war der Unternehmer und Familienvater dennoch bei dem Rennen, das die Sunday Times mit einem Preisgeld von 5000 Pfund ausgelost hatte, angetreten? Und was ist an Bord geschehen, dass er für immer verschollen blieb? Einfühlsam arbeiten die Autoren anhand der letzten Aufzeichnungen die Vorgeschichte und sonderbaren Abläufe auf See auf. Sie berichten von menschlichem Streben und Versagen. Erzählen eine Geschichte über Heldentum, in der kein Held vorkommt. Und zeichnen das Porträt eines bemerkenswerten Mannes, der am Ende keinen Ausweg mehr sah. "Crowhursts Geschichte ist dramatischer als alle anderen, geheimnisvoller und dunkler als ›All is lost‹." Frankfurter Allgemeine Magazin "Eine der außergewöhnlichsten Seefahrtgeschichten, die je veröffnetlicht wurde." The Washington Post "Ein Meisterstück." The New Yorker "Eines der packendsten Lesestücke über das Segeln überhaupt." FAZ
