            Navigation skills are easy to take for granted, but the ability to find our way is a key to humanity's evolutionary success. Sharing illustrative stories of the lost and found, Michael Bond explores the science of our mental maps and their vital relationship with imagination, mem...ory, abstract thinking, and other cognitive functions.

            Sailing across an ocean needn't be just a fanciful dream. With this unique book it is a workable ambition, provided you have the right mindset. Drawing on wisdom from members of the Royal Cruising Club, the Cruising Club of America and Australia's Ocean Cruising Club, it gives un...matched access to the expertise that those planning to sail an ocean need to absorb. Personal accounts from highly experienced ocean sailors add colour and provide invaluable insights into real-life offshore cruising. Paul Heiney, himself a singlehanded ocean sailor, tackles every issue the would-be ocean sailor needs to consider: - Budgeting, including the type of boat you need - Good destinations and routes - Understanding weather patterns to make faster or easier passages - Pros and cons of singlehanded sailing, as well as sailing with families and children - Pros and cons of ocean sailing rallies - Important but often neglected issues: entertainment, swimming, fishing, cooking - Ways of keeping in touch with home - Dealing with practicalities from afar: mail, bills, prescriptions - Coping with problems that arise: equipment breakdowns, injuries, storms - How to readjust to life back on shore after the end of the voyage Successful, enjoyable ocean sailing is not just about mastering sailing skills, but about developing the right frame of mind to be comfortable and safe so far from shore. It will equip anyone thinking of sailing across an ocean with the level of self-reliance necessary to respond to anything that might happen, and ultimately help them find the confidence that will ensure a deeply satisfying ocean voyage.

            Stress-Free Navigation: Electronic and Traditional

            Stress-Free Navigation: Electronic and Traditional (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            You might think stress-free navigation sounds like an impossible paradox. But it need not be. All boaters, whether under sail or under power, need to be able to navigate safely on the water - both to keep themselves and their crew out of trouble and to avoid endangering others. Y...et navigation has often been presented almost as a black art - complicated, full of tricky maths, and with alien concepts to get your head around. Step in `Mr Stress-Free': having in his previous books presented techniques for sailing and motorboating in an accessible, manageable fashion, Duncan Wells now turns his attention to navigation. He makes concepts easy to understand and the practice of navigation perfectly achievable for all - with minimum stress. The book covers the basic introductory elements clearly and simply for novices, and progresses through more advanced techniques for experienced navigators, so that there is something for everyone, whatever their skill level. Diagrams, quick-reference tables and flowcharts, explanatory step-by-step photographs, box features, top tips and QR codes - giving access to explanatory videos - are all features that have been much appreciated by readers of Duncan's other top-selling titles.
