              Completely revised and updated to address changes in technology and safety standards, this new edition is the definitive guide to the art and science of sailing. Since the publication of the first edition in 1983, The Annapolis Book of Seamanship has set the standard by which oth...er books on sailing are measured. Used throughout America as a textbook in sailing schools and Power Squadrons, it thoroughly and clearly covers the fundamental and advanced skills of modern sailing. Rousmaniere emphasizes the standard skills and proven methods that eliminate error and confusion, ensure security in emergencies, and allow every sailor more time for enjoyment on the water. Much has changed since the Third Edition ereaders and computers have replaced paper maps, new types of anchors and sails have been developed, safety skills and gear are vastly improved, and many more women are commanding boats. But for all these modern developments, the basic skills and spirit of sailing remain the same. From navigation and seamanship to boat and gear maintenance, from pleasure cruising to heavy weather sailing, The Annapolis Book of Seamanship is the definitive, state-of-the-art guide that provides systematic step-by-step techniques to see you through every situation on deck and in the cockpit.
