Annapolis Book of Seamanship: Cruising Under Sail
- Format: DVD
- Release Date: 1/1/2007
Featuring world renowned sailing expert John Rousmaniere. This is the most complete and detailed instructional DVD ever made about sailing, from the first moment you first climb aboard, to dropping anchor. While this program deals with a voyage made under sail, many of the techniques demonstrated apply equally to power boaters, to whom seamanship and navigation skills are as important as to the sailor. Every maneuver and technique is demonstrated clearly with plenty of close ups and action replays. Subjects covered include, basic navigation and planning a cruise, sail handling and sail trim, anchoring and docking, steering and boat handling, safety at sea, what to wear, moving around on deck, knots and rop work and much more.
