Brought thoroughly up-to-date with new developments and covering all the theory and practical aspects of the RYA Day Skipper Certificate with full colour photography, helpful diagrams and worked examples, it is also a clear and comprehensive manual for anyone intending to make coastal passages in a small boat, covering:

  • seamanship
  • safety equipment
  • preventing collisions at sea
  • navigation and chart work
  • tides and tidal streams
  • pilotage
  • passage planning
  • weather
  • engine operation and maintenance
  • the most up-to-date VHF radio procedures

With its refreshingly practical approach and by the same author as the highly successful Yachtmaster for Sail and Power, no one intending to follow an RYA Day Skipper course whether for sail or power can afford to be without this lively, helpful guide to complement the course and assist with exam preparation.
