The Atlantic Pilot Atlas provides a complete guide to the weather of the North and South Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Now revised for the fourth edition, it also includes new weather forecasting and global warming information. Any skipper contemplating an ocean crossing needs to know what conditions he is likely to meet en route, in order to plan a safe and comfortable passage.
Forty specially drawn colour charts show detailed information on the winds, currents, gale frequencies, rough sea conditions, hurricane tracks and recommended sailing routes for each month of the year for all these waters.
'This is what every yachtsman contemplating an extended cruise needs in one book.No serious offshore bookshelf should be without one.' Yachting Monthly
