Product Description

All boaters - whether at sea, on rivers or canals, and whether on dinghies, yachts, canalboats or motor-cruisers - need to know how to tie and use a variety of knots. The Adlard Coles Book of Knots, previously published as The RYA Book of Knots, is now available in a new edition, with clear how-to diagrams for easy reference and colour photographs to enliven the text. It will enable the reader to master over 50 of the most useful knots they will ever need.

The knots are divided into groups such as stopper knots, bends, loops and hitches, each of which is used for different purposes. The clear illustrations show how to tie each knot and for which situations it is most useful. There is a handy indication of which knots are easy to tie quickly in emergencies, and which work best with natural or artificial fibre ropes. Finally, there is handy advice on securing rope ends.

'Good company for those attending their first sailing course.'
- Yachting Monthly

'The illustrations and the straightforward explanatory text should give the beginner confidence in being able to master tying any number of pratical knots.'
- Nautical Magazine
