Here is a book full of tried and tested tips on simple modifications tothe boat, on items to have on board, on meals and sleep, on cruise plannin g, on safe practices without undue restrictions: it shows, above all, how to generate an atmosphere on board which allows everyone, young and old, to get the best out of the trip.” - from the back cover.
