Interesting knot know-how sections give extra information about the knot's history, plus helpful tips and techniques, including choosing the right rope for the right task and using the right knot. With a beautiful modern design, and highly illustrated with full colour photographs and instructive diagrams throughout, The Knot Bible remains accessible to all sailors of all levels of experience whilst still being the king of knot books.

The charts are intended to aid the navigator in selecting the fastest and safest routes with regards to the expected weather and ocean conditions.Few sources of information are more important to offshore sailors than a pilot chart -- and they are fascinating to study even if you never go five miles from port. In essence, they contain frequency and strength of wind from every direction, month by month, for every 5º square of every ocean. Their data are the result of hundreds of years of observation by mariners. Each atlas contains a pilot chart for every month of the year.
