Whether sail or power, running a boat is challenging and rewarding, but the unique world of water and weather can be daunting. Day Skipper for Sail and Power teaches you all you need to know to understand the challenges and command your water world. Topics include:
- Seamanship
- Safety equipment
- Preventing collisions at sea
- Navigation and chart work
- Tides and tidal streams
- Piloting-finding your way
- Knot work for docking, sailing, and all other needs
- Passage planning
- Weather
- Engine operation and maintenance
- The most up-to-date VHF radio procedures

With its refreshingly practical and clear approach (and by the same author as the highly successful Yachtmaster for Sail and Power), no one intending to venture on the water in a small boat can afford to be without this lively, helpful guide.

Alison Noice is a former Yachtmaster instructor and examiner. She trains and examines instructors for the Short Range Radio certificate and runs Yachtmaster and Day Skipper shore-based courses at her local yacht club. She still finds time to sail for pleasure in her Moody 31. Alison lives in Poole, Dorset, UK.
