Whether out for an afternoon's sail or embarking on a long offshore passage, there is always an element of chance and uncertainty about being at sea. To be responsible for the well-being of both crew and vessel, good skippers need to know their limitations and ensure they are operating well within the margins of safety.

Safe Skipper is a practical and thought-provoking guide for yacht skippers of all levels of experience, full of invaluable advice and tips on how to reduce to the minimum the risks of mishaps and equipment failure at sea. There's a wide range of information on seamanship, preparation, seaworthiness, gear, boat handling, leadership, teamwork, watch keeping, communications, navigation, weather, and emergency procedures, all delivered in a highly practical, lively, non-preachy fashion.

Included throughout are useful checklists, box-outs, and case studies of accidents and their causes, with survivors' testimonials and explanations of how disasters were avoided, or could have been, all of which provide valuable lessons for everyone who goes to sea.
