Be prepared for any situation!
While still one of the safest sporting activities, boating has inherent risks and dangers that require preparedness and quick action should an emergency arise. With a knowledge of watercraft must come the knowledge of how to survive if something goes wrong, and no boater should raise anchor without the skills needed to handle such emergencies. With detailed illustrations on nearly every page, the Sea Survival Handbook is a comprehensive how-to guide for dealing with nearly any maritime crisis. Inside you find:

What to do in a Man Overboard (MOB) situation, including search patterns, sailing maneuvers, and rescue techniques
Lifeboat varieties- and how to stow them
How to prepare for and handle heavy or extreme weather
Instructions on firefighting, distress signals, and fishing techniques
How to right a capsized vessel
Long-term survival methods for extreme temperatures
Recommendations for indispensable equipment, clothing, and supplies
Much, much more!

The Royal Yachting Association is the United Kingdom's governing body for sailing, windsurfing, motor boating, and personal watercraft.
