Although this is still considered the "bible" for heavy weather sailing it is very dated and concentrated overly on the weather forecasting aspects rather than sailing techniques.


Interesting and Informative

by dbmullin on Jan 10, 2012

Gives you a good idea of what to try and what not to try in heavy weather. Interesting stories of actual events with analysis of the results with suggestions for other tactics that may have been employed in the situation.

For the sailor who can hold his cookies

by Jamie R on Jun 23, 2011

This is one of those books you need when you are out there with the elements. Learn how to handle yourself and the boat and survive a storm...

Classic book for sailors
