Synopsis: Since this book was first published in 1967, it has become the standard work on seamanship under gale conditions. Over 100,000 copies have been printed in the English language, and there are editions in French, German, Dutch, Italian, Swedish, and Spanish.
This much-expanded edition is the first thorough revision in 16 years. Twenty new chapters from expert contributors on both sides of the Atlantic cover modern hull shapes and rigs, the latest gear and strategies for outlasting storms at sea, and advances in weather knowledge. There are also chapters on powerboat and multihull management in heavy weather. And the material carried over from the third edition remains as gripping and useful as ever. Under such titles as "September Hurricane" and "Twice Rolled Over," they tell spine-tingling-we-were-there stories followed by postmortems analyzing which gear and tactics worked and which didn't. With the aid of the comprehensive index, the sailor of a vessel designed and equipped to the standards of the 1990s will be ready for any weather.
If ever there were a definitive volume, based on a lifetime's cruising and racing, and profiting from the knowledge of experienced yachtsmen and organizations, this is it.
From the Publisher: "The new edition is marvelous and should replace that copy already on your shelf."
