The knowledge to sort yourself out when encountering problems at sea is largely forgotten. How to find your way when the GPS plotter has a blackout, how to get yourself off when grounded, how to save the life of someone in your crew when the ambulance or SAR helicopter is hours away... Too many rely on technology to navigate and run their boats, and this beautifully illustrated handbook will be a literal backup when the tech fails, filled with core knowledge - seamanship - that all skippers should know anyway, whether they're in the middle of an emergency or not. Packed with vital information, with handy fact boxes to highlight especially important information, the authors have lent a modern, real-world approach to the subject matter, and the wonderful illustrations bring it to life. Contents include: - How to use this book - This is Seamanship 2.0 - Seamanship: Best practice: engage your crew, voyage planning, staying on board, staying afloat, tight marinas, prepare for a storm, med mooring, catch a mooring buoy, anchoring, gale and storm tactics, towing - Problem fixing: gas leak, when sails rip apart, a line in the prop, stuck anchor, engine problems, fuel problems, electrical problems, blackout - Emergencies: man overboard, fire, holed and sinking, running aground, rudder failure, losing the mast, helicopter rescue, SAR boats, abandon ship, emergency communication - First aid: DRABS, CPR, respiratory problems, circulation/shock, treating wounds, burn injuries, fractures and sprains, head injuries, hypothermia, seasickness, bites/stings, abdominal pains, first aid kit Published in Sweden by the Swedish Cruising Association, this fantastic book has sold over 25,000 copies.

Living up to their promise, the authors deliver vital information on the core skills of seamanship in an easy-to-read manner, making this book a good corrective to digital dependency... Novices will find it invaluable, but even skilled veterans will pick up helpful (and potentially lifesaving) hints. * Nautilus Telegraph * Everything is clearly explained. Many of the illustrations are worth a thousand words, and every scenario gets you thinking about how you'd cope with it on your boat. Highly recommend. * Practical Boat Owner * This excellent book covers the full range of possible emergencies at sea with brief text and clear instructions. * Practical Boat Owner * The authors appear to have a common-sense approach, with plenty of coloured sketches in hand-drawn style to supplement the text. * CA * Highly recommended... Ollie Landsell's lively and abundant illustrations are as stimulating as the text itself and frequently memorable. -- Julia Jones * Yachting Monthly * This book covers all the basics, with handy fact boxes to highlight especially important information. The authors have lent a modern, real-world approach to the subject matter, and the wonderful illustrations bring it to life. * Noonsite *
