Product Description

The seamanship classic you should have on-board when sailing in rough weather.

Heavy Weather Sailing has long reigned as the ultimate international authority on surviving storms at sea aboard sailing and motor vessels. The book brings a wealth of expert advice from many of the great sailors of the present, including fresh accountsfrom Peter Cook and Larry and Lyn Pardey of yachts, both sail and power, overtaken by extreme weather.

Techniques for coping with heavy seas are explored and a new section on storm sails has been added. A new chapter on Seeking Shelter from Heavy Weather gives pithy advice on how to anchor, moor and go alongside during a storm, as well as advising against simply dashing for harbour without any thought as to its suitability or safety once there. Seasickness remedies proposed, there are lessons to be learnt for those in command, and a detailed analysis of meteorological conditions leading up to a storm.

This is the 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 of the sort of preparations required, and the tactics which should be considered when it comes on to blow.

Peter Bruce is a survivor of the gale-plagued 1979 Fastnet Race and a Royal Navy veteran. An avid cruising sailor and racer, he has handled sailboats in all weather. He is the author of several British pilot guides and was the author/editor of the fourth and fifth editions of Heavy Weather Sailing.
