It is easy to take for granted how much a good yacht skipper needs to know. Navigation, finding the way into a new harbour, using the radio correctly, checking the engine, noting something aloft that may need repair, reading the weather forecast wisely - all these things and many more can be part of a skipper's day.
But skippers are busy people. Details are easily overlooked, and reminders are always useful. This pocketbook is not a textbook, but an invaluable aidememoire of much that a skipper needs to know - both to look after his boat and sail her safely.
