    Default Cruising Under Power by Dag Pike

    At the helm of a cruiser or powerboat you are free to explore wherever you please, on your own terms and at your own pace. Whatever your level of experience, you can dream up an adventure that meets your requirements.

    Cruising Under Power shows you how to plan and execute a cruise in a seamanlike manner while still getting maximum enjoyment and satisfaction out of your journey, including:

    Preparations before your cruise (weather forecasts, route planning and comfort on board)
    Entering and leaving harbour (setting courses, speeds, booking a berth or finding an anchorage)
    Assessing weather and sea conditions (fine tuning your plans, reading weather charts and remaining flexible)
    Challenging conditions (cruising at night and in fog, adventurous cruising and fuel management)
    When things go wrong (safety equipment, coping with emergencies and calling for help)
    Rules and regulations (collision regulations, traffic lanes, going foreign and qualifications)

    Cruising Under Power will give you the confidence and practical know-how to let go of the ropes and head off into a world of interest and excitement.

    Dag Pike began his career as a merchant captain; he went on to test RNLI lifeboats, and later took up fast boat navigation, winning a string of trophies for powerboat races around the world. This included navigating Richard Bransonís Virgin Atlantic Challenger on the record-breaking fastest Atlantic crossing by powerboat. He is now a navigation and powerboat journalist in demand around the world.
