This is a book about practical weather forecasting, and it starts where most other books finish. Weather forecasts give you a lot of information about the weather to come, but they often leave out a lot of the detail, and the timing of changes can also be vague. In this book, Dag Pike shows how to translate the basics into practical weather forecasts so you can work out what it will be like in your area and along your proposed route. Sailors will be able to make better use of the available wind and avoid difficult areas, while powerboat drivers more interested in the sea conditions will be able to find the smoothest waters for a better ride.
Dag Pike is a well-known nautical journalist and author, spanning both sailing and motorboating and with an international reach. He was the navigator aboard Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic Challenger first when it sank, and again when it succeeded in breaking the Atlantic speed record. He is the author of several books and many articles for leading nautical magazines.
