Owning a boat requires sailors to develop a whole new skill set and take on a raft of new responsibilities, but this essential handbook takes the stress out of what should be an enjoyable, rewarding next step, and shares a wealth of practical advice on what might initially seem daunting new challenges.

Drawn from more than thirty-five years of the author's own experiences, this book is packed with expert wisdom and hand-holding guidance on every aspect of owning, equipping, maintaining, sailing, and--of course--enjoying your first boat.

Topics covered include: choice of boat; insurance; assessing (and costing) moorings and berths; navigation and safety equipment; domestic equipment (galley, bedding, clothing, etc); navigation (including in fog); manuevering in close spaces; sources of weather information and forecasts; responsibilities towards crew; catering and cooking; maintenance advice (daily tips, winterizing, engine servicing, fitting out for spring, etc.); paperwork (including customs forms); dealing with emergencies; and more.

Filled with color photos and diagrams throughout, this comprehensive guide is indispensable for new skippers who have learned to sail at a sailing school or on a friend's boat and are ready to take the next step.
