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.

Un original, divertido y atractivo relato del mundo, el de un hombre amable que, desvinculado desde hace años de la servitud de los bienes materiales, sabe disfrutar como nadie de los pequeños y grandes placeres de la vida. Chris Stewart comparte con el lector una de las experiencias más insólitas de una vida ya de por sí asombrosa. Todo comienza de forma fortuita cuando una amiga le ofrece un trabajo tentador: ser el patrón de un velero para navegar en las islas griegas. La propuesta parece un sueño hecho realidad, si no fuera por un pequeño inconveniente: Chris no ha navegado en su vida, ni sabe por dónde empezar. Con abundantes dosis de ingenio e hilarante autocrítica, Chris narra su iniciación a la vela, desde un neblinoso puerto de la costa inglesa hasta su particular odisea por aguas mediterráneas rumbo a la isla de Spetses. Y como guinda, una inolvidable peripecia a través del Atlántico Norte por la ruta del legendario explorador escandinavo Leif Eriksson. Reseñas: «Chris escribe con un vitalismo optimista, rebosante de gracia y franqueza.» Jordi Pigem, Culturas «Tres maneras de volcar un barco [...] nos recuerda que la vida es una oportunidad maravillosa y nos incita a exprimirla.» Pascual Perea, Territorios

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)

En 1873, Mark Twain escribió esta popular novela en la cual describía La Edad Dorada como el «camino dorado americano» hacia la fortuna. Este período, más que cualquier otro, en la historia de América, aspiró a los ideales europeos de la aristocracia y del patrocinio con las colaboraciones sin precedentes entre los familias adineradas americanas y los artistas. El término caracteriza la cultura de América a partir de la guerra civil (1861-65) hasta principios de siglo XX. Durante este período, el desarrollo de la producción en masa, las innovaciones en agricultura, el transporte, y la fabricación, produjeron una abundancia inimaginable, dando lugar al término «millonario». Se formaron grandes ciudades y por primera vez en casi 2.000 años, surgieron ciudades de más de un millón de personas. Los autores satirizan la corrupción política después de la guerra civil americana. Aunque no es uno de los trabajos más conocidos de Twain, han aparecido más de 100 ediciones desde su publicación original en 1873. Twain y Warner habían planeado originalmente publicar la novela con las ilustraciones de Thomas Nast. El libro es notable para dos razones: es la única novela que Twain escribió con un colaborador y, su título, llegó a ser inmediatamente sinónimo del materialismo y la corrupción en la vida pública de la época.
