This is the perfect book for anyone who finds general weather forecasts frustrating because they don't give sufficient local detail. It answers such questions as- Is it likely to rain, be sunny or windy? Will it be a good day at the beach? Should I take an umbrella to work? Will there be plenty of wind for sailing? Should I water the lawn? Alan Watts, the acclaimed author of the bestselling Instant Weather Forecasting, explains in straightforward terms how to look at the sky and interpret what the clouds indicate about the coming weather. He explains how to combine information given in weather forecasts with the readers own observations to arrive at a correct assessment of what the coming weather is likely to be.

Join Lin and Larry onboard their cruising cutter Seraffyn as they explore the history-laden waters of the Mediterranean Sea. For three years they meandered under sail, eastward from the rocky monolith of Gibraltar to the imposing stone ramparts of Malta. They share stories here of the kaleidoscope of people who filled their days along the way: from the British military officers who joined them for races to the officials who turned them into smugglers (not of drugs but of a boat-full of yeast, flower, vegetables and propane - and eventually twenty dollars worth of noodles!) Lin's warmhearted storytelling will draw you into their cruising life and revewal the secrets that kept this well-known couple wandering the watery reaches of the world for more than forty years. Lin and Larry paid for their apparent freedom by working along the way - delivering and repairing yachts, and writing for magazines around the world. Their motto - Go Small, Go Simple, Go Now - has inspired thousands of potential voyagers to stop dreaming and set out to sea. "The Pardeys weave a tale of people and anecdotes that makes for marvelous armchair cruising. If you've read earlier works, you won't be disappointed. If you"re new to the spell of the Pardeys, this will surely hook you." -- Yachting

Seabreezes are the lifeblood of cruising and racing sailors - but they are a fickle resource and it's vital to be able to predict and read the situations when they will blow strongly, change direction (annoyingly) or vanish altogether. This is a highly practical handbook from Alan Watts, the renowned meteorology author, on a subject only lightly touched upon in other books. Here he helps seafarers of all types (dinghy sailors, yacht racers, big boat cruisers, etc) to capitalise on when the seabreeze will occur and from what direction. He will explain the relevance of: - Time of day - Sea/land temperature - Local topography (bays, cliffs, headlands, etc) - Pressure systems and their effect on the arrival and duration of seabreezes Illustrated with photos, wind charts, box-outs, checklists, and tips and hints, this is the book that will help sailors to use the wind efficiently, whether to cruise or race successfully.

A Portrait of Intercession is a collection of articles, often prophetic in nature dealing with various aspects of intercession. Each chapter will at once challenge the believer to go not only the first mile with Jesus, but willingly and joyfully press on in true and vital fashion, overcoming faith to go the second mile with Him in prayer and intercession. A Portrait of Intercession is a series of challenges, calling the believer to stretch out in believing and bold faith. It is a call to a more intense and intimate relationship with Jesus; to see His vision for the nations and to hear His heart for the peoples of the world. Intercession is, of necessity, a hidden ministry. Its labors may be seen only by a few but it is recognized and welcomed at the Throne of Grace. It is possibly the most noble of ministries and surely the most noble of the various forms of prayer. Intercession willingly joins us with Jesus in His never-ending, ever-watchful prayer for His people. It is a selfless praying which readily enters into Christ's sufferings; that is, our joining with Him in His divine laboring at the expense of our own wants and desires.
