The aim of this book, now revised for the 4th edition, is to help students through their shore-based Yachtmaster course. Both concise and comprehensive, this 'crammer' covers all the essentials of the RYA syllabus, arranged and highlighted to make revising easier. Throughout, the theory is set in a practical seagoing perspective. Tips on exam tactics are provided, and to relieve the tension of all that swotting, each section is enlivened with some of Mike Peyton's best loved cartoons. This book has proved a real help to aspiring Yachtmasters. 'A wealth of information, simply laid out' Cruising
