Manoeuvring at Close Quarters under Power

$29.95 GST

This is a unique, practical, hands-on guide to boat manoeuvring – ideal for cockpit use or as an aide-memoire. Manoeuvring a yacht under engine at close quarters in a marina close to other (expensive!) boats can be a daunting prospect for the inexperienced skipper – but it has to be done in order to take your boat off a pontoon to go sailing, and to berth her after a day on the water. Throw in fast flowing tides, and unpredictable wind which might blow from the bow or beam or stern, and the exercise becomes even more of a lottery – even for the experienced boat handler. Here at last is a well organised visual guide to coping in every possible combination of wind and tide situation. Laid out in a very clear way, with one manoeuvre per page and in a handy wiro format for use when at the helm, this is the ideal teach yourself guide, and the perfect on-board aide memoire. It will be a godsend to every nervous helmsman, and a good talking point for crew!
