Checklists for Sailors – Passage Planning, Sailboat Maintenance, Cleaning, Medical and more is a boaters must-have checklist reference guide. Paperback.

When you’re first starting out you don’t know what you don’t know! These checklists will help you to:

- reduce mistakes
- reduce anxiety
- start somewhere and build on a solid foundation!

When we purchased a sailboat and decided to sail around the world we were overwhelmed by the enormous learning curve. 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. We needed checklists for sailors!

Almost two 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 has therefore been created as a guide, or a blueprint, to help you mitigate your learning curve regarding a variety of standard tasks associated with sailing a sailboat.

Here are just some of the checklists you’ll find in this helpful resource for sailors or skippers:
-The start to finish of a sailing voyage – with new crew/guests
-Passage planning – preparation and plan
-Boat briefing -Guests and or crew duties and responsibilities
-Anchoring -Packing and preparing for a sailing holiday
-Maintenance and service checks
-Wintering a boat
-Every time your boat is out of the water
-Spare parts checklist
-Cleaning and maintenance checklists
-The First Aid log
-The First Aid Kits
-Medical question form
-Medical radio advice forms
-Medical observation checklists
-Taking the dingy to land
-Keeping children occupied on a boat
-What about Seasickness?
-Meal provisioning
-All those and more.

Trevor James Bavaria 45 Cruiser – April 4, 2017

Every Checklist You might Ever Need in One Book – After months of drafting my own inadequate checklists a friend recommended Kimberly Browns book Checklists for Sailors. I never realised that there were so many aspects to sailing that this very comprehensive and complete book covers in ensuring that risks are minimised through thorough pre planning. In addition the offer of the Microsoft Word soft copy has allowed me to modify, consolidate and tailor these checklists to my own personal needs. As a serious sailor in Australia and the Pacific I would highly recommend this book.

Just what the captain and crew needed – Much needed book for my upcoming voyages. This will help me keep on track during my outfitting and stocking.

Kim and Simon are awesome people and so great helping others with their videos, books and blog. I am trying to talk my wife into dropping everything and going sailing. I bought this book for her to read and she loves it. Probably not any closer to convincing her into such a big life change but she lives the book. Thank you Kim and Simon for getting this information to those of us who want to do what you do!
