Product description

The Reed's Skipper's Handbook, now in its 5th edition, has been a bestseller since first publication. A handy pocket size, it is an aide-memoire of everything a boater would need to know at sea. Packed with a wide range of information in a concise form it is frequently recommended by Yachtmaster Instructors as a quick reference guide and as a revision aid for anyone taking their Day Skipper and Yachtmaster certificates. The 5th edition has been updated and reorganised to make it even easier for the reader to navigate right to the information they want. There is an expanded section on navigating with electronics and new sections on electronic chart plotters, radar and AIS, and an expanded secion on boathandling and seamanship. Reeds Skipper's Handbook is a must for anyone going to sea in any size of boat - be they novice or old hand. 'A terrific little volume' Motorboat & Yachting 'A brilliant guide for beginners and an excellent refresher for more advanced skippers...a top rate book' Waterstones 'Everything you would need to know when going to sea in a yacht or small boat...a humdinger of a little book' Nautical Magazine

Malcolm Pearson has a lifelong love of boats and the sea, and has been 'messing about' in boats - sail and power, large and small - for well over sixty years now, around the coasts of the UK, Northern Europe and America. He has also made several yacht delivery trips to the Mediterranean, some through the European Inland Waterways and others the long way round via the Bay of Biscay. Malcolm was also a Yachtmaster Instructor for over 20 years.

Review quote

'A handy pocket size, it is an aide-memoire of everything a boater would need to know at sea.' Yachting Life (July 2007) 'This well-known pocket book reappears..in its fifth edition- testament to its continuing popularity since it was first published in 1993..A great aide memoire.' Classic Boat 'If you were allowed only one book on board, and it had to fit in your pocket, then this would have to be it...A good value aide memoir or revision tool' Yachting Monthly (December 2007) 'The fifth edition of Reeds Skipper's Handbook has been updated and expanded to provide more information on electronics as well as boat-handling and seamanship. The layout is logical and the table of contents and index are concise and complete for quick reference or for revision. It's a handy, small size for storage in the chart table or jacket pocket and the pages appear to survive a dousing without tearing or smudging.' Practical Boat Owner (Jan 2008)
