Ship Handling by Hervé Baudu
Responding to the recommendations arising from the STCW convention on the knowledge of maneuvering required of deck officers, the book Ship Handling analyzes all aspects of a vessel's maneuverability, whether passing through open water or confined waters.
The book consists of three parts: the first sets out the ship's capabilities and its maneuvering gear, the second considers the forces which set the ship moving, and the last describes the ship as it maneuvers (mooring, sailing in shallow waters, port maneuvers, etc.). Special attention is paid to the behavior of a vessel subject to external forces, with a basic approach to these concepts suited to novice pilots, together with a more thorough study into ship dynamics, of interest to sailors more familiar with the subject. 
The book is aimed at students at maritime training schools beginning to train in ship maneuvering, as well as experienced ship handlers who wish to further their skills in this vast area.
Ship Handling was awarded the “Grand Prize” of the French Maritime Society in 2012.
