Description - UK and Ireland Circumnavigator's Guide by Sam Steele
"The new circumnavigation bible" - Geoff Holt (the first disabled sailor to sail around Britain singlehandedly) A circumnavigation of the UK and Ireland is the perfect 'doorstep' challenge for sailors and motorboaters looking for an extended cruise which doesn't take them too far from family and responsibilities and allows them to keep in touch. It doesn't require extended time off work, or linguistic ability if things go wrong - and the coastline is beautiful! This book is a practical guide and Sam gives advice on planning and preparation: when to leave, whether to go clockwise or anti, what charts are needed, how much it is likely to cost, possible routes (via canals or 'the long way'), what stores and equipment are needed, likely pitfalls en route, and what types of running maintenance might be required. UK and Ireland Circumnavigator's Guide is sure to appeal to all those sailors and motorboaters dreaming of one day circumnavigating Britain's beautiful islands. 'This is a comprehensive guide to sailing (or motor boating) round Britain' Sailing Today- Highly Recommended Title'There is something to learn on every page.
