  • <h2>With a partner, anything is possible!</h2> <p>A practical memo where all the situations of sailing together are considered in great detail. The friends you were counting on have failed you! On the family side, no one is really motivated. And yet the weather looks good and it would be a real shame not to take advantage of it. That leaves your old friend. He's always up for it, but he's not quite up to speed. But never mind. The call of the sea is too strong. This is much more common than it seems. Provided that you prepare your navigation well, divide the tasks well and explain the manoeuvres to come, with all the current technical developments, setting off with two people is no longer really a problem. With a good autopilot, one crew member in the cockpit and one on the foredeck are generally enough to manage all the sails at sea, to moor at a pontoon or to take a mooring, to anchor in a cove, to follow the navigation with the GPS and to cook. And twelve hours of sleep per day and per person is far too much to be tired...</p> <p>But be careful all the same. It's before leaving that you have to anticipate all the gestures, all the unforeseen events so as not to be caught off guard. Dominic Bourgeois wanted to make this special edition a practical memo where all the situations of sailing together are considered in great detail.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>This book contains all you need to know about the new ropes, Dyneema, flat-line, square-line and other Vectran and Technora, their strength and elongation.</h2> <p>For this special issue, which deals with the more specific aspect of modern ropes, we have once again called on Patrick Moreau, the great specialist in seamanship. This book contains as a preamble everything you need to know about the new ropes, Dyneema, flat-line, square-line and other Vectran and Technora. In particular their tensile strength, elongation and chafe resistance. It deals with all the work that yachtsmen can easily do on board their yachts to improve manoeuvres on deck, in the rig or around the fittings.</p> <p>Patrick Moreau offers a complete chapter on the basic and essential knots that every good sailor must know. In addition to the classic knot tying on a twisted rope, the aim is also to explain to sailors the use of modern ropes, mainly braided, which are increasingly found on our boats, for halyards and sheets as well as for mooring lines. Making a button halyard with a pure core rope, over-sheathing a halyard to limit wear in a cleat, making a diminished sheet for the furling jib, a textile grommet to replace a shackle, a joint between a chain and a rope to facilitate the passage through the windlass are techniques that riggers have been using for a long time on racing yachts.</p> <p>This special edition is the first book to deal with modern seamanship; it provides all sailors with techniques previously reserved for professionals. Photographic step-by-step instructions for learning and understanding.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

However, it is important to know how to use it and to identify the risks in order to better prevent them.</h2> <p>Learn how to use all the GPS functions, and at a glance on your screen you will see where you are and where you are going, how long it will take you to get there and what time you will be in port. As your boat progresses, the various displays, figures and graphs show the constantly changing data, which is both fascinating and reassuring.</p> <p>As an everyday tool, GPS has become commonplace for road traffic or nature walks. Its nautical use, however, remains the most sophisticated of all, along with air navigation. At sea, a lack of settings, a handling error or a wrong reading can result in a shipwreck, with much more serious consequences than getting lost in the open country. Marine sense - a mixture of thoughtful analysis of all the information on board, observation of the maritime environment and constant sensory monitoring - consists first and foremost in never relying on a single instrument, even if it is as precise and magical as the GPS. When the reefs appear in front of the bow, it is too late to wonder if the position displayed on the screen is really accurate...</p> <p>This special edition is aimed at beginners as well as those who already use a GPS on a regular basis but who do not check its correct operation, rarely pay attention to its settings and hardly use its advanced functions...</p> <h2>Features</h2>

From the captain, he has retained a sense of organisation but rarely gives orders. He may have been a skipper in his youth, but nowadays he prefers to sail with friends or family. The expression "Only master after God" makes him smile, even though he knows that he is in charge of the boat. He is the SKIPPER. He or she, for that matter! By mixing genres, the anglicism on the front page of this new special edition is definitely very practical!</p> <p>Because skippering a sailboat is a combination of functions. Mind you, this does not necessarily mean going fast or manoeuvring as if on parade. Let's rather focus on what makes a successful cruise: a good knowledge of your boat and systematic checks, an in-depth study of the sailing area and routes, good reflexes to deal with an emergency situation... the list is long but it's worth taking stock of it before setting off. And if you think that a few revisions are welcome, you will find in the last part an inventory of the thematic training courses currently offered in France.</p> <p>Jean-Louis Guéry, a former base manager at the Glénans Nautical Centre, journalist for Voiles et Voiliers and editor of nautical instructions for the SHOM, shares his in-depth knowledge of cruising with us. He gives us his vision of this "good skipper" and the thousand details that make sailing a pleasure to share.</p> <h2>Features</h2>
