Competent Crew covers both the shorebased and the practical aspects of the RYA Competent Crew course. It will prepare newcomers for the first time afloat by explaining basic skills and boat handling including: sail trimming and sail handling; understanding the compass; sailing a course; anchoring and mooring; ropework; handling safety equipment; emergency procedures; simple collision rules; elementary meteorology. Ideal for the beginner, Competent Crew also includes a comprehensive glossary, clear explanatory diagrams and photos in full colour, the syllabus of the RYA Competent Crew course and self-testing questions and answers. It will prove invaluable for novice sailors and those embarking on this first level RYA course. This new edition benefits from a lively new design and revised text. Fresh diagrams and photographs have updated the look, and the text has been completely revised, in line with RYA course guidelines. 'This is just what the crew member needs to digest before he sets foot on board' Yachting Monthly 'Very definitely an invaluable textbook for anyone starting off' Sailing
