Editorial Review:

Product Description:


The definitive book for all crews contemplating sea voyages--this new edition includes new information on heavy weather handling and recent heavy weather experiences from around the world.



Heavy Weather Sailing has been regarded as the ultimate international authority on surviving storms at sea aboard sailing and motor vessels. The first edition was compiled by Kaines Adlard Coles himself in 1967. Since then, technology may have improved, but the weather certainly hasn't. This is the seventh updated edition, edited by racing yachtsman Peter Bruce, which ensures that in its fiftieth year, the book remains relevant and essential.



The book brings together a wealth of expert advice from many of today’s great sailors--including fresh accounts of yachts overtaken by extreme weather--from Ewan Southby-Tailyour, Alex Whitworth, and Peter Cook to Larry and Lin Pardey. It also includes a new foreword by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Britain’s most high-profile yachtsman.



The expert advice section has been updated in line with current thinking--along with new information regarding the use of storm sails and drag devices, the technique of taking refuge, and heavy weather preparations and their effects on yacht design. These revisions ensure that Heavy Weather Sailing is as useful today as it ever was--perhaps more so in the light of tragic disasters like the loss of the Cheeki Raffiki mid-Atlantic after her season racing in the Caribbean. This is the definitive book for crews of any size contemplating sea voyages, whether racing or cruising.
