This book, based on a highly successful series of articles in Practical Boat Owner magazine, is a detailed practical guide to sailing around the UK - all by means of day sails.

Roger
Oliver, a passionate sailor, explains his in-depth passage planning,
boat preparations, weather checks and log-keeping, as well as his
choice of routes, the detailed navigation, sail trim tips and on-passage
maintenance, all for the benefit of sailors who have a yen to follow in
his footsteps.

Packed with a wealth of practical tips on
seamanship, anchoring in high winds, coping with big seas,
problem-solving, harnessing the tide, sailing short-handed and living
aboard for extended cruising, this book will be a godsend to the many
thousands of sailors who enjoy coastal cruising and who will discover
(as did Roger) that it is perfectly possible to cruise around the whole
of the UK in a series of day sails.

With this book to hand, and
inspired by Roger's detailed route maps and spectacular photographs,
anyone can experience the thrill and enjoyment of sailing around the
beautiful and varied UK coast from any starting point.
