From the Dust Jacket: "Navigation by its very nature is a practical subject and learning it needs a practical approach. With this in mind, Jeff Toghill has set out to write a book from which navigation can be learned. What is needed is a visual approach, avoiding as far as possible masses of figures and formulae which are an unnecessary obstacle to learning for the ordinary yachtsman. Another important aim is simplicity because most yachtsmen don't want to wade through material which is applicable principally to large ships and professional navigators. While whittling things down to the essentials it is of course vital to maintain accuracy." Size: A4 (300 x 210mm approx.).
