Heavy Weather Sailing has long

reigned as the ultimate international authority on surviving storms at

sea aboard sailing and motor vessels. The book brings together a wealth

of expert advice from many of the great sailors of the present,

including fresh accounts of yachts overtaken by extreme weather, from

Ewan Southby Tailyour, Alex Whitworth, Peter Cook, and Larry and Lin

Pardey.

Techniques for coping with heavy seas are explored, and new

chapters have been added, giving advice on the use of storm sails,

taking shelter in heavy weather, handling multihulls in storms and one

on handling RIBs in high seas. Seasickness remedies are proposed, and a

detailed analysis is given of the meteorological conditions leading up

to a storm.

This is the definitive book for crews of any size

contemplating voyages out of sight of land anywhere in the world,

whether racing or cruising. It gives a clear message regarding the

preparations required, and the tactics to consider when it comes on to

blow.

If you buy no other book for your voyage, buy this one’ Pete Goss (renowned yachtsman and rescuer of Raphael Dinelli during the 1996/97 Vendee Globe)
