- understanding the compass
- sailing a course
- anchoring and mooring
- ropework
- handling safety equipment
- emergency procedures and simple collision rules
- elementary meteorology.

Ideal for the beginner, Competent Crew also includes a comprehensive glossary, clear explanatory diagrams and photos in full colour, the syllabus of the RYA Competent Crew course and self-testing questions and answers.

This new edition benefits from a lively new design and revised text. Fresh diagrams and photographs have updated the look, and the text has been completely revised, in line with RYA course guidelines.
