For 50 years Heavy Weather Sailing has been regarded as the ultimate international authority on surviving storms at sea aboard sailing and motor vessels. The first edition was compiled by Kaines Adlard Coles himself in 1967. Since then technology may have improved, but the weather certainly hasn't. This is the seventh updated edition, edited by racing yachtsman Peter Bruce, ensuring that in its 50th year the book remains as relevant and as essential as it has been for the previous five decades.

The book brings together a wealth of expert advice from many of the great sailors of the present, including fresh accounts of yachts overtaken by extreme weather, from Ewan Southby-Tailyour, Alex Whitworth and Peter Cook to Larry and Lin Pardey. It also includes a new Foreword by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Britain's most high profile yachtsman of the past 50 years.

The expert advice section has been updated in line with current thinking, and there has been a major update to the chapter focusing on the use of storm sails as well as to the use of drag devices. The technique of taking refuge has been reviewed and updated, and the chapters dealing with preparations for heavy weather and its effect on yacht design have been overhauled. These revisions ensure that Heavy Weather Sailing is as relevant, useful and instructive for today's sailor venturing offshore as it ever was – perhaps more so in the light of tragic disasters like the loss of the Cheeky Raffiki mid-Atlantic on a delivery trip after her season racing in the Caribbean.

This is the definitive book for crews of any size contemplating voyages out of sight of land anywhere in the world, whether racing or cruising. It gives a clear message regarding the preparations required, and the tactics to consider when it comes on to blow.
This well-established pilot, now in its third decade, covers the Azores, Canaries, Madeira and Cape Verde Islands. The sixth edition of Atlantic Islands builds on solid foundations - the author's long familiarity with the area, an invaluable network of local contacts, and the constant flow of information and feedback received from yachtsmen and women during the lifetime of the previous edition.For this edition the coverage has been extended to include Bermuda. This new section is an important development especially for US-based yachts and for the east-bound Atlantic crossing. New photos and new and revised harbour plans support the fully updated text.Whether you seek authoritative pilotage information, comprehensive details of available facilities, or simply suggestions for planning an enjoyable cruise, you will find them all in his new edition of Atlantic Islands.This well-established pilot, now in its third decade, covers the Azores, Canaries, Madeira and Cape Verde Islands.

The aim of this book is to enable novices to
cruise safely and enjoyably. It will cover the preparations needed before
undertaking a cruise, operating the boat under different and sometimes
challenging conditions, how to cope when things go wrong, how to conform to the
rules and regulations, and how to navigate. It conveys the advice and
information just as the cruiser will encounter it on passage - from setting off
to arriving at their destination (rather than compartmentalised into
navigation/weather/engine etc).

Topics include: Preparing to cruise (weather forecasts, route planning, checklists); Leaving harbour (harbour entrances, radio contact, setting courses and speeds,
crew briefing, food and drink); Assessing
weather and sea conditions (fine tuning plans); Watch
keeping under way (visual and electronic navigation, coping with alarms); Entering
harbour (planning ahead, radio channels, finding an anchorage, speeds); Cruising
at night and in fog (lights, radar, shipping lanes, stopping distance); Adventurous
cruising (navigating inshore, beach landing, hidden dangers); Fuel
management and economy (economical speeds, boat trim, reserves); Comfort
on board (cooking and sleeping at sea, security); When
things go wrong (potential problems, safety equipment, coping with fire,
leaks, grounding, engine problems, calling for help); Rules
and regulations (collision regulations, traffic lanes, going foreign,
qualifications).

Aimed at owners of powerboats and motor cruisers between 25
and 65ft, the book will be entirely practical, with checklists, sidebars and
box-outs and many diagrams and photos.
