Recommended Reading for Fans of Nautical Non-Fiction
From a marine-electronics troubleshooting guide to a world cruiser’s pilot book, these top-shelf reads from Practical Sailor’s contributors both entertain and inform—and all are great to curl up with on a cold winter day.
Practical Sailor contributors come from all walks of life. Some are cruisers. Some have circumnavigated. Some are renowned racers, and others still are boatyard owners or electronics gurus. Some write for us regularly. Others check in every 10,000 miles or so. But they all have one thing common: They know what they’re talking about. Each one, in his or her own right, is a trusted authority among the sailing crowd. You can tap into this PS fountain of knowledge with each issue of Practical Sailor and by picking up one of the reviewed books written by our capable contributors: Beth Leonard’s “Blue Horizons, Dispatches From Distant Seas” and “The Voyager’s Handbook,” Ed Sherman’s “Advanced Marine Electrics and Electronics Traoubleshooting,” Andy O’Grady’s “Ocean Passages and Landfalls,” and John Rousmaniere’s “In a Class By Herself” and “A Berth to Bermuda.”
