    THE ART OF SEAMANSHIP.
    By Ralph Naranjo. Hardback, 1.42kg, 152mm x 224mm, 285 pages, black & white photographs and illustrations. Published in 2014.
    Each time a sailboat casts off its docklines the sailor enters a marine realm that demands knowledge, preparedness, vigilance and coolheadedness – these qualities are therefore the foundation of good seamanship. Both an art s well as a science, seamanship is also the mastery of numerous practical details, from the best choice of line for a jib sheet to an accurate assessment of the passage of a deep low-pressure system.

    Around-the-world sailor Ralph Naranjo – technical expert and ocean racer – delivers a priceless reference for anything that comes up while on the water, sharing all the knowledge today’s sailors need to “hand, reef and steer” – an enduring reference to the collective skills of the bluewater sailor. Naranjo’s vast knowledge is supported by real-life examples of sailing mishaps, sample itineraries, vibrant photos, as well as first-hand accounts and sidebars from top sailors and marine experts.

    Seamanship is a dynamic art, demanding full attention from the sailor amidst a constant flow of information and knowledge.
