Product Description
Product Details


...there is much in here to interest the inexperienced potential skipper/owner of a planned ocean or long distance passage. (Mapes) covers everything from choice of vessel, fitting out, voyage planning, victualling, boat handling, crew selection, health, etc. There is a particularly large section on weather and forecasting... I would strongly recommend it for anyone planning a long voyage for the first time as skipper or crew as one very experienced skipper's way of doing things. Royal Naval Sailing Association Any library strong in nautical how-to information or offshore sailing needs Ed Mapes' Further Offshore, directed to sailors who already have the basics down and who want to go further than day sailors usually achieve, to bluewater heights.
