I assume Chapman's is considered superior to the Annapolis Book of Seamanship (which I purchased because it was the required course reading for ASA 106, but I note it takes shortcuts like summarize rules of the road as they apply to sailing vessels, not list all of them)
The only thing better than spending time on a sailboat with people who love sailing is spending time with people who love sailing on a sailboat that loves people
