How to cruise reading

I'd like to point a friend some things to read on how to cruise. He' keeps asking me questions and I'm feeling like if something goes wrong on his first attempt to cruise as a buddy boat Everything wrong will be my fault .. we all know the "Well you said....." comment

Re: How to cruise reading

what is his style, low tech simplicity or high tech modern boat wizardry? That might help point in the right direction.

Beth Lendard's "The Voyager's Handbook: The Essential Guide to Blue Water Cruising"

or of course there are the books by the Parodies.

Re: How to cruise reading

Parodies ... I love that!

There are 2 free e-books I can highly recommend: Paul Lutus' "Confessions of a Long-Distance Sailor" and James Baldwin's "Across Islands and Oceans". Both are very well written and capture the adventure of cruising, warts and all. Both are from the low-budget/simple boat camp.

* Confessions Online

Edit: I just re-read your post and I see you want "how to cruise" sources. Beth Leonard's book is terrific, as is Nigel Calder's "Cruising Handbook". The Pardey's books are great as well, especially if you plan on going the low-budget/simple boat route.

Re: How to cruise reading

You ever read "Sailing Promise", great insight to the up's and downs of newbies learning the in's and out's and takes you through he learning curve from her pespective, as well as the common emotions we encounter, I liked it. Any thing by Bernard Moitissier...Slocum is a must read......Nigel Calder.....and Triston Jones.

In that case, he needs this book. It's actually a funny and interesting read, as much as a what to pack, how to cook it and recipe book. I recommend it highly.

Re: How to cruise reading

I thought Nigel Calder's book had tons of great information for gearing up for cruising on a rather large budget. Beth Leonard's book had less technical information but lots of other stuff you need to know b/f you cast of the lines.
