General Guide to seamanship that is Euro-oriented

Is there a general guide to seamanship more UK/European-based than the more US-oriented Chapman Piloting and Seamanship? Or is this book really the number one choice in a field of one, for all of us? With due deference to the US citizens on this forum, their definition of 'international' tends to differ from that of the rest of us! I say this notwithstanding the fact that many/most of the Americans on these pages will have travelled and thus may have a global perspective not afforded to the reported 80% who haven't bothered to get their passport...

I don't know how much General Seamanship changes with locale, other than the lingo. But, you could have a look at The Complete Yachtmaster, and some of the other RYA based material from the UK.

I think it mentions rifles David. As we say in the British Army (pointing to our nether regions) "That's your rifle, THIS is your gun, that's for fighting, this is for fun".
