The Skipper's Pocketbook Summary

The Skipper's Pocketbook: A Pocket Database for the Busy Skipper by Basil Mosenthal

A pocket database containing everything a busy skipper needs to know but might find hard to remember. It is easy to take for granted how much a skipper needs to know : Navigation, how to pilot the boat into a new harbour, using the radio, checking the engine, keeping an eye out for things that need repair, monitoring the weather, feeding the crew and much, much more! This pocketbook is designed as an aide-memoire with checklists to make life easier for busy skippers and a must-have reference for first-time skippers. It should also prove an invaluable reference book for the RYA Yachtmaster syllabus. The book has been helping skippers for nearly 20 years and has now been edited and thoroughly updated by Yachtmaster Instructor and Examiner, Sara Hopkinson. (RYA and Yachtmaster are registered trademarks of the Royal yachting Association.)

The Skipper's Pocketbook Reviews

"A handy reference guide, a fantastic aide-memoire." (Sailing) "Whether you're putting to sea in your own boat for the first time or have years of experience, this is a handy reference guide to ship in your pocket or keep on board." (Sailing Today) "This lighter volume can save time. It has checklists, troubleshooting guides and useful illustrated aide-memoires." (Practical Boat Owner) "The Skipper's Pocketbook shoehorns generous coverage of many topics into a small volume... all in an easy to understand, concise fashion, and the use of many full colour diagrams help the reader quickly absorb the points." (Yachting Life)
