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.
