125 Tips and Techniques for Better Navigation, Cruise Planning and Boat Handling Under Power or Sail. These seamanship and navigation techniques are designed for maximum usefulness in the cockpits, pilothouses, and navigation stations of sail - and powerboats. Navigation techniques range from traditional to electronic and include highly useful tips for coastal cruise planning under sail or power.

Autorentext

John Jamieson (Port St. Lucie, FL) spent 23 years in the Coast Guard as an enlisted navigator, instructor, search and rescue coxswain, and ships conning officer. He has taught seamanship and navigation for the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy and has trained hundreds of students in these arts both ashore and afloat. As Senior Assistant Controller at the Rescue Coordination Center in Long Beach California, he coordinated air-and-sea search-and-rescue missions from the border of California and Oregon to the Yucatan Peninsula, out to 1,000 nautical miles offshore. Jamieson holds master and mate licenses for both power and sail and is a nationally certified sailing instructor. He recently directed the seamanship and chart navigation department at the internationally renowned Charles F. Chapman School of Seamanship in Stuart, Florida. He has sailed single-handed for 13 years and has delivered sailing vessels along the U.S. East Coast. This is his first book.



Klappentext

"Secrets' is the modern Bowditch, written so clearly that navigation and seamanship will be comprehensible to anyone . . ."
--Dave and Jaja Martin,circumnavigators and authors of Into the Light: A Family's Epic Journey

"It's a great book. The prose is simple and clear . . ."
--John Vigor, author of The Seaworthy Offshore Sailboat

"The nautical tips and techniques presented are encyclopedic, yet the clear explanations demystify the topics . . ."
--Don Launer, contributing editor for Good Old Boat magazine

"It is a fine piece of work and should be read by anyone contemplating coastal cruising or blue water voyages. It definitely deserves a place in the offshore yacht's library . . ."
--Ted Brewer, yacht designer, author, and offshore racing and cruising sailor

Be a Better Skipper

In the night, wind, rain, fog, big seas, strong currents, or congested waters, when there's no time for textbook seamanship solutions, what you need are shortcuts and techniques that work quickly and reliably every time.

Distilled from the vast accumulated lore of seamanship and navigation, here are the absolute essentials--185 techniques that work without fail in the pilothouse or the exposed cockpit or flying bridge of a shorthanded sail- or powerboat. John Jamieson shows you how to:

  • Set up a clipboard chart table for cockpit use
  • Avoid hazards with danger bearings or a GPS grid highway
  • Estimate current speeds with the 50-90-100 rule
  • Track other boats in poor visibility using radar plots and bearing drift
  • Sail home without a rudder or get your twin-screw boat home on one working engine
  • Dock or anchor under any conditions
  • And much, much more

Even in this age of electronic navigation you need to know how to eyeball your boat through any situation. Each of the techniques in this cut-to-the-chase book has shown itself to be absolutely repeatable. It will work this time, the next time,and the time a er that, in conditions fair or foul.
