    Modern Marine Weather is a very comprehensive treatise of marine meteorology for sailors. IT is written by a sailor, which allows the author to focus on the most relevant topics. Most sailing books have a weather section, this book takes a different (and better) approach covering both the theoretical aspect and the practical aspect of all topics. As an example, by reading this book, you are not only able to understand what the effect of a low pressure system are on wind but also what the mechanism Modern Marine Weather is a very comprehensive treatise of marine meteorology for sailors.

As an example, by reading this book, you are not only able to understand what the effect of a low pressure system are on wind but also what the mechanism is that generates the low pressure system, the way it evolves and moves in relation with the cells of global circulations, how and why fronts form and so on. Very useful for every mariner no matter if the plan is a day sail in a protected area or a long passage in the southern hemisphere.

    In nearly thirty years of sailing I've read a great deal about weather, most of which related to the RYA syllabus. If you have read the same you will probalby notice some irritating holes in the narrative. Want to fill in the holes - this is the book for you. As my friend and crew commented, "These people clearly know a lot about the weather", well they do and they have taken the time and trouble to explain just about everything they know in great detail, and reasonably up to date in a fast chan In nearly thirty years of sailing I've read a great deal about weather, most of which related to the RYA syllabus.

As my friend and crew commented, "These people clearly know a lot about the weather", well they do and they have taken the time and trouble to explain just about everything they know in great detail, and reasonably up to date in a fast changin field. It has changed the way I look at the charts and forecasts and had a major impact on our weather planning. I have not yet even started exploring the web resources. However, a lightweight summary this is not, so if you struggle with reading and find technical texts difficult, get an adult you to help or stick with the colouring-in. I cant recommend it enough!

    Fantastic book! Insightful and super clear way (using plenty of visual explanations) to understand key forces and symptoms related to changing weather. It contains a lot of examples and resources, which truly help understand what is going on with the weather and how to predict its changes. Obviously, what helps is that the book is written by a sailor. It is a must read for any skipper!
