The bestselling Reeds Handbooks are hugely popular with boaters on board and at home, and the Reeds Weather Handbook continues in this same tradition. This essential pocket-sized guide equips the reader with all the tools to predict and deal with local and distant weather conditions, whether on a day trip or a longer cruise, along the coast or further offshore.
Each topic is broken down into digestible chapters, explaining the origins and effects of the full spectrum of weather conditions, including:
using and evaluating weather forecasts
depressions, fronts, isobars and other coastal effects
waves and swells
weather lore and sky watching
With practical explanations and helpful diagrams and photographs, this is the ideal aide-memoire for skippers and crew, especially those studying for their Day Skipper and Yachtmaster exams.
