Synopsis

This brand new edition of Stress-Free Sailing is the answer to single or short-handed crews' prayers - a step-by-step handbook addressing the most common sailing situations that anyone cruising will have to manage.



Here you will find clever, highly effective and successfully tried and tested shorthanded solutions for dealing with everything from getting off and then back onto the dock in a variety of wind and tide configurations, sail setting and reefing, mooring and anchoring, to sailing in heavy weather and new techniques for man overboard, all clearly illustrated with straightforward diagrams and sequence photos. 24 QR codes dotted throughout the book link to online video demonstrations to bring the techniques to life.



As single or short-handers you have to plan carefully, prepare properly and be able to anticipate. This new edition is a godsend with its original techniques for coping in every situation. It is fully revised throughout with new practical tips and advice on mooring, navigation, anchoring and safety at sea.
