Heavy Weather Sailinghas 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. 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. "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)"This book is an institution" Practical Boat Owner."The ultimate survival handbook" Yachting World
