    050219 Paradise Cay Storm Tactics Handbook 978-1929214471

    The Storm Tactics Handbook explores the myths that have sprung up about ways to bring small boats through storms and shows tried and true methods that work for all types of sailing vessels.

    Features:

    • Special sections explain storm sail design, sea-anchor technology and tips for preventing gear failure at sea
    • Includes a series of check lists designed to help potential voyagers chose, then outfit their boat for safe voyaging plus others to prepare them as a storm actually approaches and reassure them once they are in the midst of heavy winds and seas
    • With clear and concise diagrams, they proceed to show how heaving-to works and how even the most modern of yachts can be made to heave-to, whether with only sail power or with the assistance of a sea anchor
    • Highly readable stories of the Pardey's encounters with storms, and of experiences related by several other modern sailors, help illustrate and expand the points made in this book
    • New material includes:
      • Lessons from Cape Horn
      • An interview with the late Sir Peter Blake, on storm survival and heaving-to
      • Heaving-to, using a Galerider on 55-foot Morgan's Cloud
      • Adding rudder protection stops
      • Discussions on avoiding chafe
      • Building and using storm staysails
      • Choosing storm gear
      • Deploying para-anchors
      • Avoiding the worst areas of cyclonic storms, and many more have been expanded to answer many questions posed by readers and seminar attendees

    About the authors:

    • Since writing the previous edition of Storm Tactics Handbook, Lin and Larry have voyaged an additional 35,000 miles
    • This has taken them as far north as Norway, twice across the Atlantic, south to Argentina, into the Pacific, around Cape Horn against the prevailing winds, and then on a circuit of the North Pacific
    • With insights gained from these recent voyages, they have fully revised and expanded this text by more than 40 percent, including nine completely new chapters
