A once complex method of navigation has now been made simple - put this timeless theory into practice. Trusted navigation expert, Tom Cunliffe, shows you how to master the art in easy stages. Celestial Navigation includes clear diagrams and worked examples to guide the novice navigator.

The purpose of Coastal and Offshore Navigation, 3e is to give the sailor - who has some knowledge of inshore work a solid foundation in the arts of coastal and offshore navigation. The approach to the subject is essentially practical, so that a yachtsman whose seafaring is done in a small sailing vessel can relate to and profit from the contents.

It removes the complexities of navigating with a sextant to provide a fascinating and very practical guide to fixing your position with help from the heavenly bodies. Access to an online area allows readers to download calculation forms and to watch video of Tom Cunliffe explaining the intricacies of sextant use.

Considerable effort has been made to indicate the sort of accuracy that can reasonably be expected in the various facets of small craft navigation, so that the reader can sensibly evaluate their results. All the threads with which the navigator weaves his patterns are drawn together at the end of the book in chapters on passage planning and navigational practice. These explain what you actually do, while the earlier chapters give you the knowledge and expertise with which to do it, in reality, out at sea. This book guides you through all the techniques you need to master - and shows you how to draw them together in practice to ensure a smooth trip and safe landfall. It includes: • A review of the basic arts of navigation. • How to predict the tide - and make it work for you.

• Safe and constructive use of electronic aids to navigation. • Passage planning for an enjoyable, satisfying voyage. • Passage making: a systematic, no-nonsense approach. • Provides an excellent insight into safe passage planning and navigation. • Previews the basics of navigation before explaining the trickier techniques that a good sailor needs to master.

This is a handy reference to study and keep on board ensuring you are ready for any medical incident or emergency on board. At sea you cannot ring for an ambulance and wait for help; you need to act immediately as you may be hours or even days away from assistance. First Aid Afloat is a book that could save someone's life, and no boat should be without it.

The first man to sail solo and non-stop around the world, in 1969, Robin Knox-Johnston instantly became an international legend. In addition to setting other global sailing records, he has led sailing expeditions to far flung destinations, amassing a breadth of experience few can equal. In his new book, a compilation of his monthly articles in Yachting World, Sir Robin shares his thoughts on the majesty, mystery, and dangers of sailing the open seas. He describes the "joy of the solo sailor" as well as the realities of safety at sea and life on board a yacht, recalling his escape from a perfect storm, night terrors and waves capable of devouring a ship.

Aimed at the novice first-aider, this book is intended to be used at the time of the accident or illness. Each topic is designed to be read at a glance: the language is kept short and simple, and photo sequences show exactly what to do.

Be inspired to take the underwater photographs you have always dreamed of with your compact camera Since the birth of compact cameras, technology has come on leaps and bounds. Current compact systems can now rival the most sophisticated dSLR set ups at the fraction of the price. Divers, regardless of their experience, bring along their camera to document their aquatic encounters, but many are disappointed with the results: many divers have turned to author, Maria Munn, to help improve their techniques.

Designed to help the beginner and the more advanced digital compact camera users, this book will inspire both snorkelers and divers to achieve fabulous underwater photographs. Crammed with fantastic tips and photographs to illustrate the techniques, it delivers expert advice without confusing the beginner or patronising the advanced user.

The Swim Smooth approach helps you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your stroke and provides drills and training tips to make the most of your time in the water. It accepts differences in individual swimmers and shows you how to understand the fundamentals of swimming to find a style that works. The authors are highly experienced triathletes and open water swimmers who teach and train thousands of people every year. They are consultants to the British Triathlete Federation.

Chapters include choosing and caring for your camera underwater, understanding the settings on your camera and underwater composition, and much more.
