Description: To feel safe and confident at sea, we all want to know what is likely to happen weather-wise over the next few hours and days ahead.
The RYA Weather Handbook has been written to complement the RYA Dayskipper and Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster syllabi and is recommended reading for anyone taking one of these courses.
But whether you are following an RYA course or just want to understand the weather a little better, this book is full of practical and useful advice on how to understand weather maps and improve your forecasting skills.
Written by a sailor for sailors, the RYA Weather Handbook explains the complexities of the weather using full colour diagrams and illustrations - and without lots of jargon.
Your time afloat should be fun and understanding the weather can only enhance your enjoyment.
Chris Tibbs has a sailing career that has covered over 250,000 miles at sea including three round-the-world races. He is an RYA Ocean Yachtmaster and has a Master's degree in meteorology. After training as a forecaster with the Met Office, Chris runs his own company advising and forecasting for the sailing fraternity.
As well as being a prolific writer for various yachting magazines, Chris still finds time to sail and is navigator on the maxi-cat Playstation which has broken five sailing records including Round Britain and Ireland.
