You might think stress-free navigation sounds like an impossible paradox. But it need not be. All boaters, whether under sail or under power, need to be able to navigate safely on the water both to keep themselves and their crew out of trouble and to avoid endangering others. And traditionally the learning has started in a dusty class-room with a paper chart. But actually these days we start on board the boat with some high tech electronic kit. So, what is this electronic stuff telling us? Stress Free Navigation is different from all other navigation books in that we start every chapter with the electronic kit and then move to the traditional method. We progress through the book exactly as if we were doing our RYA Day Skipper Theory or Yachtmaster or MCA exams, electronically first and then traditionally. We aim to make concepts easy to understand and present navigation in a way that can be absorbed in a stress free manner. The book covers the basic introductory elements clearly and simply for novices, and progresses through more advanced techniques for experienced navigators, so that there is something for everyone, whatever their skill level. Diagrams, quick-reference tables and flowcharts, explanatory step-by-step photographs, box features, top tips and QR codes giving access to explanatory videos are all features that have been much appreciated by readers of my other top-selling titles.
