More Description

The third revised edition of Adlard Coles' classic Heavy Weather Sailing, published by John deGraff between 1984 and 1989, has long been out of print. Mystic Seaport's bookstore has acquired a number of copies in excellent condition, and they are available from this catalog or from the bookstore as long as they last. This analysis of storms at sea and the behavior of yachts in them is both scientific and journalistic, including not only weather and wave-behavior data but accounts of storm experience and strategy from seasoned offshore sailors, not the least of them Adlard Coles himself. Typical storms in a number of locales are documented, and included is the 1979 Fastnet storm in four of the book's eleven appendixes.
