Editorial Reviews

Review

Single-Handed Sailing is the book to consult when thinking of making a single-handed passage and wondering if your boat is suitable. Frank Mulville gives dependable, sound advice on choosing self-steering, adapting rigging and gear, what supplies to take and how to stow them, preparing for bad weather, and how to keep fit on an ocean passage. These and many other practical matters are dealt with, from sail-changing to safety lines. But what makes this book especially valuable are the chapters on what the author calls the discipline of the ocean, the need to establish sleep patterns that enable a proper lookout to be kept and the wider problems of loneliness and the absence of human contact. --Wisconsin Bookwatch, February 1992
