The last decade of the twentieth century has seen monumental changes in the design of all types of cruising yachts and the way in which we can fit them out and sail them. This book evaluates modern technology and looks at every aspect of modern yacht design and construction, seaworthiness and comfort. It examines the many new electronic aids to navigate and communication that can make life safer for the offshore sailor and all the other high-tech equipment now available. But, more importantly, it explains clearly what is really of use, and then measures the new against the traditional.
