The Reeds Crew Handbook is proving a useful guide for experienced and novice crew alike. Both an aide-memoire for old hands and an ideal introduction for skippers to hand to new and aspiring crew, it gives them all the essential knowledge they need to undertake the tasks traditionally handled by crew aboard any size of yacht, including:

• Steering (both with a tiller and a wheel)

• Raising, dropping and reefing a sail

• Boat handling (using tide, wind, etc)

• Handling lines (throwing, coiling, lassoing, etc)

• Tying up a boat on a pontoon and against a quay wall

• Attaching bow and stern lines and springs

• Handling an anchor

• Using the radio

• Basic first aid

• Essential knots

Presented in bite-sized topics in a very accessible and undaunting fashion, and packed with colour illustrations to guide crew through each task, Reeds Crew Handbook is an invaluable primer for new crew before going to sea, and a handy pocket-sized aide-memoire for experienced crew when under sail.
