20,000 people every year start Day Skipper shorebased courses, so there is quite a good market for any decent book aimed squarely at this market – and this is! An out-and-out crammer, this is rather in the style of the RYA’s own two Course Notes books, but this one covers both the shorebased and practical in one volume. Enlivened by Mike Peyton’s cartoons, it assumes no prior knowledge. PB. 104pp.
