For decades, Linda and Steve Dashew’s books have been considered essential references for any serious cruiser. Having been blessed with the support of the yachting community for many years, they’d like to return the favor.For the first time, the Dashews’ four essential cruising books are now all available as free PDF downloads.
You can download Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia, Mariner’s Weather Handbook, Surviving the Storm, and Practical Seamanship HERE. We hope Mariner’s Weather Handbook helps you avoid the need for Surviving the Storm, and that Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia and Practical Seamanship enhance your tools for successful cruising. If these books help a few of our fellow cruisers have a more enjoyable experience, and perhaps stay out of difficulty, we will have been amply repaid.
