LEARN THE NAU­TI­CAL RULES OF THE ROAD

Yachting Monthly - - BOOK CLUB -

Paul Boissier, Fern­hurst

This is the sec­ond edi­tion of a 2010 ti­tle and has been up­dated for the 2016 COLREGS changes. As these changes (sec­tion F) have no im­pact on the con­duct of ships at sea, the orig­i­nal edi­tion is as valu­able as ever. Paul Boissier is not only an ex­pe­ri­enced cruis­ing yachts­man, he’s a for­mer vice ad­mi­ral, used to view­ing the sea lanes from the bridge of a war­ship; he’s also the cur­rent chief ex­ec­u­tive of the RNLI.

Boissier writes with in­tel­lect, wit and re­al­ism, ef­fort­lessly ed­u­cat­ing the reader to un­der­stand the spirit as well as the let­ter of the law. His tips and anec­dotes, gleaned from ex­pe­ri­ence, make this an ex­cel­lent guide to an es­sen­tial sub­ject.
