Reseña del editor:

Wind, waves, weather, and water demand the practiced art of seamanship

"Planning and reacting to the unanticipated are the flip sides of seamanship. This blending of pre-voyage preparedness with effective on-the-water response is learned rather than inherent--together they define the art of seamanship." -- Author RALPH NARANJO

Each time a sailboat casts off its docklines the sailor enters a marine realm that demands knowledge, preparedness, vigilance, and coolheadedness--these qualities are the foundation of good seamanship. Both an art as well as a science, seamanship is also the mastery of numerous practical details, from the best choice of line for a jib sheet to an accurate assessment of the passage of a deep low-pressure system.

Around-the-world sailor Ralph Naranjo--technical expert, ocean racer, former Vanderstar Chair at the U.S. Naval Academy--delivers a priceless reference for anything that comes up while on the water, sharing all the knowledge today's sailors need to "hand, reef, and steer"--an enduring reference to the collective skills of the bluewater sailor. Naranjo's vast knowledge is supported by real-life examples of sailing mishaps, sample itineraries, vibrant photos, as well as first-hand accounts and sidebarsfrom top sailors and marine experts, including Shelia McCurdy, Chuck Hawley, Lee Chesneau, and Paul Miller, N.A.Seamanship is a dynamic art, demanding full attention from the sailor amidst a constant flow of information and knowledge.

Reseña del editor:

This is your ultimate manual for self-sufficiency on the water and for the skills to face any challenge. Instead of covering boilerplate topics like equipment, nautical jargon, trailering, flag etiquette, and more, The Art of Seamanship allows you to push your nautical envelopes - with the knowledge that you will be able to respond to anything that comes your way. You will delve into topics such as knowing what a sailboat can or can't handle; assessing your limits and those of your crew and how to grow as a skipper; blending modern weather forecasting procedures and weather routing with passage plans; integrating electronics with navigation; line handling when docking in a blow; staying put in hurricane; and more. Sea-tested wisdom going well beyond other seamanship texts. It improves your skills. It is great for reading and self-study, and also to carry aboard as the ultimate insurance against the unforeseen. It features real-life scenarios that shows you how to respond to extreme challenges at sea.
