Annapolis Book of Seamanship

I've been watching the "Annapolis Book of Seamanship" DVD series with John Rousmaniere. I know John pops in here every once in a while and I wanted to say thanks for a great series. Really helpful.

Having him frame safety considerations in light of the Fastnet disaster about which he wrote in Fastnet Force 10 (another great read) really puts things in perspective.

Rent this series.

It's so great to have such experienced sailors around willing to teach us new sailors.

Yeah - they've got 1 and 3 for streaming. The other 3 are on DVD only. I've got them in my cue. I'll let you guys know how they are.

So far, they're a really great overview. Not a tremendous amount of detail - but more a top-level explanation of the whole picture. Now if I can just get past the '80's fashion.

BTW - what is John's boat in these vids? It looks like a C&C maybe?

I've now noticed a couple different boats in the videos. I like the ship in the first videos.

I really enjoyed Disk 4 - Navigation. John really has a way of speaking that connects directly to my brain's understanding centers.

Going to watch Disk 5 tonight, while studying navigation skills and practicing on the charts.

I've been watching the videos as well. Does the book contain significantly more information that would make it worth buying if you already have access to the video series?

The series was on eBay a couple weeks ago for $31 + shipping. No bidders, so I'd bet you could contact the seller and make a deal.

That's a great deal on the DVD series.

Good question Bubblehead. I just checked the local library and requested the book. It's due back today. I'll let you know.

Last night, I took home "Chapman's Piloting and Seamanship", 66th Edition. Wow, what a book!!!!! Great buy at Amazon right now for $37.00.

I'd like to own John's materials as well. When I review the book, I'll let you know, Bubblehead.

BubbleheadMD, I bought the book years ago--before I ever started sailing--and then devoured it after I bought my first sailboat. It's a treasure trove of information and insight on everything related to sailing. Extremely detailed. I refer to it often. Recently I watched some of the DVDs, and I agree with others that they're terrific. But the book is well worth the price.
