Everyone who goes to sea understands the importance of the weather and the necessity of obtaining an accurate forecast.
Good skippers study the weather and plan their trips to take maximum advantage of present and forecast conditions.
This book covers the knowledge required by skippers up to RYA Yachtmaster Ocean standard and provides important background information for the RYA practical and shorebased courses.
Chris Tibbs is a professional meteorologist who has sailed on the Whitbread Round the World race and skippered a Round the World ВТ Challenge yacht. His clear text provides a wealth of information of value to all skippers from day sailors to ocean yachtsmen.
As well as being a prolific writer for various yachting magazines, Chris still finds time to sail and as navigator has broken seven sailing records on the Maxi-Cat Playstation and 60 foot monohull Solune. Recently Chris has competed in the Sydney Hobart, and the South Atlantic Races.
