A Manual for Yachtsmen. A concise book, it introduces yachtsmen to the fundamentals of weather, enabling them to interpret the details of shipping forecasts, such as the General Synopsis, and relate them to their own immediate locality. It emphasises too the importance of observation, but the sailor’s eye is only at its sharpest, and his ability to make deductions at its best, when he has full understanding, for instance, of the movements of air masses, these invisible slopes in the sky along which winds flow.
