Product description

Review

If you buy no other book for your voyage, buy this one. (Pete Goss)

This book is an institution. (Practical Boat Owner)

The ultimate survival handbook. (Yachting World)

Now in its 7th edition, it has lost none of its magic. Nor has it lost its authority. A book written by experts. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who finds themselves irresistibly drawn towards the sea. It should be on every offshore yacht sailor's list of must-read books. (Paul Boissier, RNLI Chief Executive Lifeboat)

There is much that is new here, and so beautifully explored and explained that the prudent mariner will no more ignore it than neglect the latest weather forecast. (Hugh Marriott)

The bible on surviving storms at sea. This has always been an invaluable book for offshore sailors - and now, up to date, it is even more so. Highly recommended. (Sailing Today)

An essential survival handbook for anyone contemplating a voyage out of sight of land, Heavy Weather Sailing should be required reading for sailors in every junior big boat program. (WindCheck (US)) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars but sail offshore so an awareness of what to do in unforseen situations is really useful.
