    050833 Paradise Cay The Annapolis Book of Seamanship 978-1451650198

    Features:

    • The Annapolis Book of Seamanship : Fourth Edition defines the art of sailing, maneuvering, and preserving a ship or a boat in all positions and under all reasonable circumstances
    • With the addition of the words and some unreasonable circumstances, too this definition of “seamanship” is as valid today as when the first edition of this book was published in 1983
    • The aim remains to advise you the sailor on essential gear, skills, and behavior that enhance your pleasure and safety
    • This edition of The Annapolis Book of Seamanship is an extensive update
    • Much of the text is new or revised, and there are many new photos
    • Throughout, the book stresses the skills and attitudes that comprise what the author calls “The Seamanship Ethos.”
    • The first four chapters cover the boat, basic sailing skills, sail trim, and weather, with the first of many “Hands On” sections with their tips
    • The topics of health (including seasickness) and on board safety follow, with lessons learned from on-water tests and studies of boating accidents
    • The book looks closely at the elements of piloting, navigation, and electronics, including Digital Selective Calling, the U.S. Coast Guard’s emergency communication system
    • Moving on to the arts of traditional seamanship, including anchoring, heavy weather, and emergencies, there is much on modern equipment and skills, again based on experience
    • The book ends with boat maintenance and the traditions that make sailing the beloved pastime it is
    • Appendixes include best practices for protecting the marine environment and bringing up children under sail
    • About the Author
      • In this new revised edition, John Rousmaniere has updated The Annapolis Book of Seamanship with the most recent information about safety, sails, boathandling, electronics, and health issues, passed on from his sailing experience and teaching safety and reviewing accidents
      • Every chapter has been revised and several have been completely rewritten
      • John's ubiquitous The Annapolis Book of Seamanship has helped train and educate generations of sailors
      • His many other titles have earned him a reputation as the dean of sailing authors
