No sea voyage, whether long or short, offshore or within sight of land, should go ahead without adequate planning and this book is your perfect companion to help you prepare thoroughly before setting off.
RYA Passage Planning will take you through all you need to know and allow you to work through some examples of different passages. This will show you what you might need to think about on the range of different journeys you may undertake.

The essential facts and methods are split into three sections:

  • Getting down to basics
  • The essential first steps
  • Putting it into practice


Written by RNLI Sea Safety Manager Peter Chennell, this book will help you make passage planning routine. It is packed full of useful information on where to find the relevant planning sources and will prove to be a useful companion to all who take their recreation afloat.
