Aimed at the sail training sector, this practical handbook explains how the introduction of new materials has influenced their design and operation. Advice is given on voyage planning, operations, safety, training and equipment for vessels employing modern technology rather than purely traditional design and materials and those who serve, or wish to serve, as master, mate or boatswain in a square rigger or large fore-and-aft schooner. Construction, safety issues and voyage planning are looked at in depth.
