Heavy Weather Sailing

by Art on

A magnificent book that will take me a long time to work through. I think it's a terrific reference to have on-board so I can do some review before I tackle any weather. Obviously Peter Bruce is an expert on heavy weather sailing techniques and there's a lot to learn from him. In talking with others, this book appears in the conversation whenever the topic of sailing in heavy weather comes up which is a tribute to the reverence sailors place on this volume. Hint, read this on a calm, sunny day before the bad weather comes!
