200 Skipper's Tips
Among the wealth of advice there are hints on how to judge distance at sea or tell if the tide is turned, how to steer clear of rocks and ensure you come alongside safely and in style. These are the sort of practical tips that are learned over many years at sea and don’t feature in the syllabus of yachting qualifications.
The advice is organized into categories including:
- Boat handling
- Ropes and knots
- Life on board
These are the best of the Skipper’s Tips from the pages of Yachting Monthly magazine, the UK’s premium cruising title. Each tip is a pearl of wisdom from Britain’s foremost yachting writer, Tom Cunliffe.
Tom Cunliffe is a hugely experienced yachtsman who learned his craft exploring waters from South America to the Arctic Circle. He has sailed everything from traditional pilot cutters to hi-tech racing machines. He is an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor Examiner and is able to convey his wealth of knowledge in an entertaining way.
200 Skipper’s Tips is perfect for dipping into, adding to your knowledge on every page – or work through the chapters to focus your learning and improve your skills and sailing enjoyment.
200 Skipper’s Tips is available to buy from all good chandlers and bookshops.
