Product Description

An alarming number of boating accidents are caused by ignorance of and failure to prepare for bad weather. Markell's essential handbook, now in a fully updated second edition, tells the sailor where to get the latest weather information and how to make the best use of it.

Part I deals with the collection and distribution of weather information, and contains some of Markell's thoughts on evaluating timeliness and accuracy. Part II covers several matters that small boat owners should be aware of in dealing with the weather, such as maintaining a weather watch on the vessel, being aware of different seasonal weather patterns in various areas, and the El Nino phenomenon. Part III explains the basic mechanics of weather systems and how they form, move, and dissipate.
