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.
