Many books on seamanship assume a fit willing crew available to haul on ropes, handle the sails and heave in the anchors - but often there are just two people aboard to cope with everything. It therefore becomes of paramount importance that the shorthandrs perfect safe and efficient techniques for berthing and casting off, raising and lowering sails, anchoring, picking up a mooring or dealing with serious emergency like man overboard.
Shorthanded Seamanship is a new aproach to the range of problems and difficulties likely to be experienced by a shorthanded crew during voyage. With its collection of down to earth advice, tips and short-cuts, the two-handed crew will be able to handle a boat by themselves in safety and with confidence. It is sure to be one of their most closely guarded on-board items.
