    RYA INTRODUCTION TO BOAT HANDLING FOR SAIL & POWER.
    By Rob Gibson. Paperback, 0.37kg, 169mm x 245m, 116 pages, full colour illustrations. Published in 2008.
    As most of us have discovered, really embarrassing bad boat handling moments happen when we are in a harbour or marina. Without fail there will always be an audience usually of fellow boaters (and your crew!) who, while initially being sympathetic are unlikely ever to let you forget it!
    Most boaters agree that "take offs and landings" are the most difficult and stressful areas of boating but that once the general principles and rules are mastered you are soon able to deal safely and confidently with most common situations.
    The object of RYA Boat Handling for Sail and Power is to help you gain a fuller understanding of boat handling by dealing with a wide variety of situations in a thoughtful and logical way.
    Expert advice in easy to follow text combined with in-depth colour illustrations make this title an essential tool to everyone who takes a boat out on the water.
