  • <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>Jean-Louis Guéry shares with us his in-depth knowledge of cruising and the thousand details that make sailing a pleasure to share.</h2> <p>From the helmsman, he anticipates the boat's reactions, but willingly leaves room for the crew. 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>
