There are so many additional aspects that all need to be taken into account and complied with that it can seem a forbidding prospect.

Topics covered : Navigation, Tides, Planning, Crew briefing, Safety information, Man Overboard drills, Obtaining weather information, Watchkeeping, Provisioning, Engine checks, Bureaucracy and form filling and much more. With this book to hand, both skipper and crew will be well prepared to tackle all aspects of taking their own boat to foreign waters for what should be a hugely enjoyable and rewarding experience!
