This book is all about being prepared for heavy weather. We all hope we won’t encounter it, but it’s not always avoidable. I wrote this volume to help folks prepare for a blow – whether they find themselves at the wrong end of a force six along the coast, or confronting serious waves far out at sea on an ocean passage.
