My choice would be Storm Tactics Handbook
. This is a must-have reference for any sailor heading offshore
where one is bound to get caught in heavy weather
. A great compliment to the book is Lin & Larry's Storm Tactics: Cape Horn Tested video
. It's the best how-to video out there illustrating tactics to cope with heavy weather
sailing. In fact, the Pardey's other four videos cover many of the topics in their books
. Together, their books and videos make a great reference library for any boat. And if space is a problem, you get books and videos in digital formats.
