Product description

If you're ever caught in a strong wind at sea, here is the information you need, packaged for instant access and on-board use. This guide from foremost seamanship expert John Rousmaniere is a security blanket for all sailors. This laminated fold-out guide provides remarkably thorough coverage of its topic in a durable, weatherproof, convenient, instantly accessible and highly graphic format. "Heavy Weather Tactics" will enable the sailor to: prepare for heavy weather before it arrives; monitor approaching gales on the radio, the internet, and on deck, and take appropriate action to avoid them; know when to reef, when to heave-to, when to run off before the wind, and when to resort to a sea anchor or drogue; choose the response that's best suited to the boat and crew; and execute each tactic effectively and safely.
