This book is a must read for all sailors, from complete beginner to seasoned professional who are concerned with the safety of themselves and others.

Keith Colwell author of the new title commented: 'Safety afloat is always prominent in the thoughts of any conscientious boat owner. The book provides essential information to ensure that your boat has the necessary safety equipment, so that anyone heading out on the water can have absolute peace of mind.'

Steen Ingerslev, RYA Publications Manager added: 'We already have a great deal of books on boat handling and techniques so this new title is an absolutely necessary edition to our stable of publications.

'Keith has done a great good and we hope people will get a lot of the book.'
