By Derek Hutchinson. Pbk, 190mm x 230mm, 196 pages, full colour photographs and drawings.
This is a comprehensive guide for the beginner and a reference book for the experienced. It describes equipment, basic and advanced techniques (including those for rolling and for rescues), weather and navigation, and is illustrated throughout by the author's own drawings and spectacular colour photographs.
This new and retitled edition contains additional archive material and both text and illustrations have been completely updated. The instruction of basic techniques in particular has been considerable expanded and is newly presented in a "master-class" format to cater for the growing body of novices who seek their first kayak experience on the sea.
The mix of text plus very good illustrations - as can be seen from the full screen picture - are exceptional as instruction material, placing it amongst the very best "how to" books we have seen on seamanship matters. Preparing books for practical-technical subjects is very hard, especially when the information is critical to safety - such as in first aid. Generally nothing can beat good teaching through practical experience. We suggest that this book is an example for others to emulate in preparing practical-technical handbooks.
