Learning the Rule of the Road: A Guide for the Skippers and Crew of Small Craft


Learning the Rule of the Road: A Guide for the Skippers and Crew of Small Craft Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A good working knowledge of the Rule of the Road is essential forboth skippers and crew of yachts and motorboats - as well as everyoneelse who goes to sea. It is also an important part of RYA Day Skipper and Yachtmaster courses.

"Learning the Rule of the Road "includes the full text of The InternationalRegulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, but because theseRegulations are lengthy and detailed they are not always easy tounderstand - nor is it easy to find your way around. This guide takes those sections of the rules that particularlyaffect small craft, and explains them briefly and simply. Lights, shapes and sounds signals are clearly set out, as are the basicsteering and sailing rules. The full text of the Regulations isalso included at the end of the book for reference.

This guide is ideal for beginners but is also an ideal aide-memoire for those with more experience.

'Don't put to sea without a copy! A first class guide' "Cruising "'As clear and unambiguous as you could possibly ask for... Thoroughly recommended' "Practical Boat Owner"
