A new, comprehensive text on how to take weather into account for the planning and navigation of voyages, local or global, using the latest technologies as well as the time-honored skills of maritime tradition, so that your time on the water remains as safe and efficient as possible. It does not just tell you about it; it tells you how to do it.
"I have chosen this book as the definitive text for the wardroom of my U.S. Navy Destroyer. Superior explanations that are as useful for the professional naval officer as they are for the coastal pleasure cruiser or blue water sailor. Consistent with all of David Burch's texts: Easy to read, fascinating, and the absolute best resource." — CDR Tate Westbrook, CO USS Spruance (DDG111).
