The Seabreeze Handbook

The marvel of seabreezes and how to use them to your advantage

The Seabreeze Handbook
Not available
Seabreezes are the lifeblood of cruising and racing sailors - but they
are a fickle resource and it’s vital to be able to predict and read the
situations when they will blow strongly, change direction (annoyingly)
or vanish altogether.



This is a highly practical handbook from Alan Watts, the renowned
meteorology author, on a subject only lightly touched upon in other
books. Here he helps seafarers of all types (dinghy sailors, yacht
racers, big boat cruisers, etc) to capitalise on when the seabreeze will
occur and from what direction. He will explain the relevance of:

- Time of day

- Sea/land temperature

- Local topography (bays, cliffs, headlands, etc)

- Pressure systems and their effect on the arrival and duration of seabreezes



Illustrated with photos, wind charts, box-outs, checklists, and tips and
hints, this is the book that will help sailors to use the wind
efficiently, whether to cruise or race successfully.
