RYA Yachtmaster For Sail and Power and Exercises

Author: 

Alison Noice and published by Adlard Coles Nautical

ISBN number: 

9781408178119 and 9781408178102

            

These are third editions by the same author. Alison Noice had a senior position in the RYA training department for some years and therefore was responsible for the examination papers encountered by shore-based students at the end of their course. The hardback text is an excellent book which thoroughly covers the current syllabus. The topics are introduced in a very straightforward way and include basic skills such as anchoring and mooring. In fact, the book would provide a useful reference for any student beginning the Day Skipper Level.
