In Heavy Weather Avoidance, Chen and Chesneau merge the seamanship of a master mariner and the forecast expertise of a senior meteorologist, providing readers with double-barrel exposure to what actually goes on in the atmosphere and on the sea's surface. Mariners and recreational sailors are more concerned about the implications of volatile weather rather than its fluid dynamics. From start to finish the authors have cut to the chase, creating a readable text brimming with useful graphics. It's focused on the root cause of how and why bad weather develops and where it's likely to go. There's enough theory provided for a reader to get a feel for how air mass energy transfer works, but just as the theoretical aspect takes on a mission of its own, there's a shift to more practical self-forecasting and storm avoidance wisdom. Captain Ma-Li Chen shares his well-tested routing strategy and describes how it factors in the use of the 500 Mb chart.

Since writing the previous edition of Storm Tactics Handbook, Lin and Larry have voyaged an additional 55,000 miles. This has taken them as far north as Norway, twice across the Atlantic, south to Argentina and into the Pacific, around Cape Horn contrary to the prevailing winds then on a North Pacfic circuit. With insights gained from these recent voyages, they have fully revised and expanded this text by more than 40% including seven completely new chapters – among them;

Lessons from Cape Horn,

An interview on storm survival and heaving to with the late Sir Peter Blake,

Heaving-to using a Gale Rider on 55 foot Morgan’s Cloud,

Adding Rudder Protection Stops.

Discussions on avoiding chafe, building and using storm staysails, choosing storm gear, when to deploy para-anchors, tactics for avoiding the worst areas of cyclonic storms and many more have been expanded to answer questions posed by readers and seminar attendees.

Originally published in 1975, Voyaging Under Power created a revolution in small-boat cruising. Until then, essentially all long-distance cruising was done in sailboats because there simply were no production powerboats capable of crossing oceans. Author Robert Beebes book showed for the first time how to cruise under power, covering boat design, engine selection, outfitting, and operations. The result was the birth of a new market, served by a whole new industry of power cruiser designers, builders, equipment manufacturers, and magazines.

Wind, waves, weather, and water demand the practiced art of seamanship "Planning and reacting to the unanticipated are the flip sides of seamanship. This blending of pre-voyage preparedness with effective on-the-water response is learned rather than inherent--together they define the art of seamanship." -- Author RALPH NARANJO Each time a sailboat casts off its docklines the sailor enters a marine realm that demands knowledge, preparedness, vigilance, and coolheadedness--these qualities are the foundation of good seamanship. Both an art as well as a science, seamanship is also the mastery of numerous practical details, from the best choice of line for a jib sheet to an accurate assessment of the passage of a deep low-pressure system. Around-the-world sailor Ralph Naranjo--technical expert, ocean racer, former Vanderstar Chair at the U.S. Naval Academy--delivers a priceless reference for anything that comes up while on the water, sharing all the knowledge today's sailors need to "hand, reef, and steer"--an enduring reference to the collective skills of the bluewater sailor. Naranjo's vast knowledge is supported by real-life examples of sailing mishaps, sample itineraries, vibrant photos, as well as first-hand accounts and sidebars from top sailors and marine experts, including Shelia McCurdy, Chuck Hawley, Lee Chesneau, and Paul Miller, N.A. Seamanship is a dynamic art, demanding full attention from the sailor amidst a constant flow of information and knowledge. The Art of Seamanship will improve your problem-solving skills, whether daysailing around the harbor or voyaging around the world. You'll learn: The attributes of a good skipper and crew—including physical and mental agility, effective communication, and knowledge-based decision making Fine-tuning your voyaging with the seaworthiness of your boat and the capability of your crew in mind Using weather information and routing resources to lower risks and raise rewards Developing advanced boat-handling skills—including heaving-to, towing a drogue, reefing, setting storm sails, and kedging Lines, line handling, and rigging--making sure the right strings are attached, including an in-depth look at modern rope construction Anchoring--the art of staying put--with a realistic look at tackle from lunch hooks to storm anchors Sails, modern sail material, sail trim, sail handling, and hardware, from hanked-on headsails to the latest top-down furlers Navigating in the satellite age, including paper and digital chartplotting, how to best use the new equipment, plus understanding the role of celestial navigation as a fail-safe Sailboat design and dynamics, including the role of vessel structure and stability and a look at what your current boat has to offer and what to look for in a new boat Sharing crowded waters and understanding the reasons behind the "rules of the road" How to be ready for any emergency, including fire, crew overboard, a flooding bilge, or the need to abandon ship Establishing reliable communication, including VHF, AIS, SSB, satellite phones, and beacon signaling (EPIRBS, PLBS)
