Description: To cope with extreme weather conditions sailors need to know to be able to recognize well in advance the approach of a deep low pressure system, to prepare for safe navigation during the passage of a storm, and then be able to handle the boat safely while the storm rages. This book, packed with practical advice and information, will help readers cope with all these aspects.
While Dietrich von Haefton's book deal with storm tactics, half of the book is devoted to the causes and effects of weather and how they affect boats. The book makes it clear that coping with storms requires the mariner to know what kind of storm is confronting him and he will be better prepared by knowing how the storm will evolve. The book deals exclusively with sail boats, but this should not diminish its value to power boaters because the common denominator is weather and sea conditions and their effect on the boat and crew. An important chapter, too often over looked in other articles and books about storms, is von Haeften's chapter on Gales in Harbour. For sheer opportunities for collision, damage and injury, nothing can surpass violent weather in a harbor crowded with unprepared and uncrewed boats.
How to Cope with Storms is a concise, readable package of information as appropriate for refreshing your knowledge of storms as for a first exploration of the subject. It is both practical and simple.
