|Book Reviews from Boat Books Australia|
I spoke to one of Sydney’s RYA schools and they recommend candidates looking for a qualification accepted in many European countries’ read the new RYA publication ICC Handbook (International Certificate of Competence) RRP $24.95. RYA schools then run a short assessment; the ICC covers boats up to 24m.
We stock many sail and rig trimming books for racing boats but a new RYA publication Sail Trim Handbook for Cruisers RRP 29.95 looks at improving cruising boats performance. Any boat will benefit from having sails set correctly, it will make your cruising safer, more comfortable and your boat sail faster. Armed with this clearly illustrated information, should enable you to make a quiet anchorage ahead of the tide or get to the yacht club bar first!
Springtime means boat covers are removed and plans are made for ‘fitting out’ for the new season. A new book Boat Maintenance RRP $27.95 will help you, whether you are new to boating or an old hand, to keep your boat in tip top shape. From repairing scratched and worn decks, to fixing engines and tightening fixings, every inch of the boat is covered.
