Stress-Free Sailing Single and Short-handed Techniques by Duncan Wells 9781472907431 (Paperback, 2015) Delivery US shipping is usually within 13 to 18 working days.
By definition couples sailing alone have to do everything for themselves. They leave the berth, set the sails, helm the boat, navigate, trim the sails, anchor, pick up mooring buoys, enter harbour, moor up and all without the help of any extra crew. So they need to carry out these manoeuvres efficiently and effectively, with as little physical effort as possible. Stress-free Sailing is the answer to single or short-handed crews' prayers - a step-by-step handbook addressing the most common sailing situations that anyone cruising will have to manage. Here you will find clever, highly effective and successfully tried and tested shorthanded solutions for dealing with everything from getting off and then back onto the dock in a variety of wind and tide configurations, sail setting and reefing, mooring and anchoring, to sailing in heavy weather and new techniques for man overboard, all clearly illustrated with straightforward diagrams and sequence photos. 21 QR codes dotted throughout the book link to online video demonstrations to bring the techniques to life.As single or short-handers you have to plan carefully, prepare properly and be able to anticipate. This book will be a godsend with its original techniques for coping in every situation.
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. Their boat handling, navigation, sail handling, anchoring, and mooring skills all have to be carried out both efficiently and effectively, preferably with a minimum of physical effort (to conserve energy). But most sailing technique books assume a crew of three or four, all willing to lend a hand. This book is therefore a first, addressing the most common sailing scenarios that anyone cruising will have to deal with, and providing clever, original, highly effective (and most important, successfully tried and tested by the author) techniques and solutions for dealing with the huge variety of essential operations on a boat-from sail setting and reefing; to picking up mooring buoys in a variety of wind and tide situations; to anchoring, berthing, and leaving a pontoon shorthanded; to picking up a man overboard; to sailing in fog and heavy weather-and even going up the mast. 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.
