Inshore Navigation by Tom Cunliffe
Book DescriptionInshore Navigation is a teaching system designed for the newcomer to navigation and pilotage. Tom Cunliffe understands the problems and misconceptions of people learning to navigate at sea. As a result his book goes straight to the heart of each topic and concentrates on what the beginner really needs to know when out on the water. The object of this book is to give you enough knowledge to be able to navigate simply and safely on short inshore passages. The logical way to begin cruising is to make day sails in reasonable weather and steer clear of night passage making until you have gained a little confidence - there is enough information here to enable you to do just that. Inshore Navigation is structured so as to help you get on the water as soon as possible and stay out of trouble as you learn the necessities. All the essential navigational concepts are covered, so that when you feel your sea going experience is sufficient you will be building on a solid foundation as you move into the greater depth of detail required for coastal and offshore navigation. Your best teacher is yourself. The rudiments are contained with Inshore Navigation, but the rest is up to you.
