A sailing classic, refreshed with fresh storm stories. If these photos don't raise the hair on the back of your neck then you don't know what you are really looking at. Enough to make you think (briefly) about staying on land. Recommended for real serious sailors and landlubbers alike. ( )

The seamanship classic you should have on-board when sailing in rough weather

Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing provides you with expert advice for when you venture out of sight of land, whether for racing or cruising. It gives a clear message of seamanlike design features, preparations, and tactics that you should consider against the time when it comes on to blow. It includes new how-to chapters on storm sails, taking shelter, and managing multihulls in storms, plus thrilling new accounts of actual storm encounters.
