This guide stresses the importance of survival techniques at sea and is written by experienced round-the-world sailors. They recommend the traditional skill of heaving to, but in addition, employing a drogue, so rigged that it keeps the bow at a quartering angle to the approaching seas.

The newest edition is already in its second printing and is used by many sailing schools as an important part of their curiculum. To be sure you are getting this new edition, look for Storm Tactics Handbook 3rd edition with the cover which shows a boat hove to with a bright orange trysail while a wave is breaking just forward of the bow.

About the Author:

After voyaging tens of thousands of engineless miles under sail, penning more useful marine books than Hiscock and Moitessier combined, and receiving more awards for their pursuits than Tom Hanks has for his, Lin and Larry Pardey are entitled to their well-earned nautical opinions. Herb McCormack, editor-at-large, Cruising World Lin and Larry Pardey have been called the enablers. Their books and videos have encouraged sailors of all ages to stop dreaming and start doing. The knowledge they share has been earned during the more than four decades they have been voyaging together, years during which they completed both east-about and west-about circumnavigations on board their own self-built, engine-free cutters, Seraffyn and Taleisin. During their most recent east-to-west voyage, they sailed below four of the great Southern Capes, including Cape Horn. An avid racing sailor from the age of 17, Larry worked as first mate on the 140-ton, 85-foot schooner Double Eagle, voyaging on her to Hawaii and along the coast of Mexico before meeting Lin. Larry, along with Leslie Dyball, won first on handicap in the exceptionally stormy 1974 Round Britain two-handed race. Lin and Larry have delivered more than two dozen boats across oceans and raced on their own and others boats. To date, Lin has sailed almost 185,000 miles and Larry has accumulated more than 200,000 miles at sea. In 1996, Larry received the International Oceanic Award from the Royal Institute of Navigation, presented by the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, for meritorious voyaging using traditional navigation methods. During the same year, Lin received the Ocean Cruising Award for being the person who has done the most to foster and encourage ocean cruising in small craft and the practice of seamanship and navigation in all branches. In 2000, both were inducted into the Cruising World Hall of Fame. Lin and Larry s articles have appeared in Cruising World, Sail, Good Old Boat, Wooden Boat, Practical Sailor, Yachting World, Yachting Monthly, Classic Boat (UK), Cruising Helmsman (Australia), Boating New Zealand, South African Yachting, Nautica Brazil, and Yacht (Germany). Their books and video programs have been published in the United States, England, and New Zealand; three have been translated into German and Japanese. Lin and Larry are cruising on board Taleisin and during the Southern Hemisphere summers, they often return to New Zealand, where they cruise and race on their 113-year-old classic gaff-rigged cutter, Thelma.
