Their boat handling, and mooring skills all have to be carried out both efficiently and effectively, navigation, sail handling, anchoring, preferably with a minimum of physical effort to conserve energy. The vast majority of sailing yacht scenarios comprise a couple sailing the boat together, needing to carry out all maneuvers and activities themselves with no help from a back-up crew.

Stress-free Sailing: Single and Short-handed Techniques #ad - This book will be a godsend to anyone sailing solo or shorthanded--including couples with young children who need to be supervised by one parent whilst the other runs the boat. Organized into techniques for different cruising scenarios, the book features step-by-step sequential photos showing exactly how to approach each situation and carry out the task at hand.

But most sailing technique books assume a crew of three or four, all willing to lend a hand. St martins Pr.
