These are some of the books we recommend for skippers
The Ocean Sailing Yacht

Donald M Street is cruising sailing and racing legend. He sailed with his yawl “Iolaire” many many decades and wrote numerous books helping sailors to plan better their boats, improve their boats and sail safely across oceans.
The books series “The Ocean Sailing Yacht” is full of Donald Streets’s ocean sailing experience giving less experienced sailors still today a lot of food for thought and solutions which still should be applied when building or equipping a sailing yacht for bluewater cruising.
Highly recommended to read.
