Passage Planning Companion

by Alastair Buchan

Part of the Practical Companions Series

Passage Planning Companion Synopsis

A compact, handy summary of the key things you need to consider when planning a passage by sea and when managing your ship on that passage: the perfect quick reference guide to keep onboard. The book covers the timetable for developing a passage plan and goes through all the elements you should consider: port information, routeing, weather, tides, timings and safety. It then takes you through ship management on the passage: the crew briefing, roles, routines, pre-sail checks, watch keeping and much more. Splash-proof and spiral bound - allowing you to lay it out flat on the chart table - this little book stands up to frequent use and will be a valued companion as you plan and execute your passage.
