When we purchased a sailboat and decided to sail around the world we were overwhelmed by the enormous learning curve. We needed checklists for sailors! Sailing our new sailboat was one part of the equation but what really baffled us, at the start, were the hundreds of maintenance tasks and cleaning routines.
Checklists will help you to become more organized and motivated to get the right things done.
You’ll also get things done quicker and more efficiently, have more clarity, delegate, save lives, and continually improve.
Almost six years after we started, we’ve learned an incredible amount about sailing, passage planning, anchoring, taking guests aboard, servicing and maintaining our systems (engine, generator, pumps, batteries, and on), cleaning schedules, provisioning, medical concerns and even how to entertain young children on board.
This book is a guide, or a blueprint, to help you mitigate your learning curve regarding a variety of standard tasks associated with sailing a sailboat.
