Most boating is done in coastal waters, yet being close to land canoften present greater dangers than sailing offshore. Near to the coast,sea conditions are more complex: winds and currents change in strengthand direction, waves are distorted by shallows, and even in fineweather there are tidal races, tricky headlands and other areas ofrough water that can increase the risks of human error, gear failureand seasickness.

Manyof the recommended techniques used in offshore voyaging - such as lyingto a sea anchor or trailing warps - are not suitable when close toland. In this highly practical guide, filled with helpful tips,real-time techniques and sound advice, Ken Endean explains thephenomena of rough water and shows how a good understanding of coastalsea conditions and careful passage planning should enable boaters toavoid the roughest areas, seek shelter and reduce passage times.

Includesadvice on: coastal winds and waves, shallow water and shoaling, swellsand currents, tides and currents in conflict, estuary effects, bars andbanks, when to take the long way, how to read the surface, getting intoharbour safely, making the most of smooth water, and much more.

Coastalboaters have little scope for mistakes and plenty of opportunities toexercise skill and sound seamanship - this practical down-to-earth bookwill enable everyone, whether in a yacht or a powerboat, to do justthat.
