Description: The essential reference for anyone interested in offshore sailing and ocean passages.
Following on from his bestselling The Complete Day Skipper and The Complete Yachtmaster, yachting legend Tom Cunliffe turns his attentions to the third strand of the RYA syllabus. With the same hugely popular, highly practical approach, The Complete Ocean Skipper covers everything a sailor needs to know when planning and preparing for an offshore cruise or ocean passage:
- Preparation: types of suitable boat, choice of rig, engine power, safety equip, communication sys, crew preparation
- On passage: ocean weather sys, forecasting, deck routines, watchkeeping, self-steering, emergencies, heavy weather tech
- Ocean navigation: electronic as well as celestial
The second edition of this definitive handbook is fully updated, with new and revised content on multihulls, autopilots, radar, anchoring and software.
The Complete Ocean Skipper goes beyond the theory of the RYA syllabus to ensure that readers are equipped with the knowledge of both what to do and how to go about it, in whatever circumstances. A veteran offshore yachtsman as well as an RYA examiner, Tom Cunliffe brings his experience to bear and packs this must-have guide with invaluable hands-on advice for offshore and coastal sailors alike. With clear, helpful colour photographs and diagrams throughout, this is the essential book for anyone planning for or dreaming about sailing further afield.
