Meteorology can seem like a black art with the meteorologist producing forecasts that seem to contradict what you are reading from the charts. The Sailor's Book of the Weather takes the confusion out of the forecasts and helps you answer, "Why is that happening?"

The Sailor's Book of the Weather introduces key principles that influence the weather and gives the sailor the tools to forecast from observations and make the most of the available information. Wind, clouds and knowledge of weather patterns and local conditions all contain ample hints to allow the informed mariner to accurately predict the weather.

Illustrated with charts and over 100 beautiful photographs, this book is a must for anyone who ventures onto the water, whatever your vessel or experience. It should be carried aboard every boat and is essential reading whether you are on the water, in land, on the coast or venturing further afield.

  • Gives sailors the knowledge required to make informed decisions and predictions
  • Written in straightforward language with the science explained for the lay man
  • Includes dozens of illustrations to explain concepts and photographs to show weather systems in action
  • An appendix provides practice charts for the reader to develop their skills
