Throughout this book the word 'skipper' is used to describe the person in charge of the boat. The skipper is not necessarily the owner of the vessel, though he may be. The use of the masculine and feminine pronoun is arbitrary. It does not indicate that one gender or another is preferred or desired for any particular job or function.
This book is written especially for those who sail aboard pleasure vessels of any size, whether sail, motor or both. A pleasure vessel of 13.7 m (45 ft) or more in length is classified as a Class XII vessel in the UK. Yachts that cease to be 'pleasure vessels' and/or Class XII vessels are subject to different legal requirements and codes of practice. Those regulations are not taken into account in this book and must be reviewed before any safety equipment is purchased.
This book complies with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) resolution A.657(16).
