About the Author

Paul Boissier was a senior Admiral in the Royal Navy and has spent much of his professional life at sea in a wide variety of vessels, commanding two submarines and a warship. He is also a very experienced yachtsman and has cruised extensively. Paul was then the Chief Executive of the RNLI.

His tips and anecdotes, gleaned from experience, make this an excellent guide to an essential subject."
