Carry on! It truly is a true classic. I have the third edition and for anyone thinking of heading out for more than a few hours from behind the breakwater, It won't do you any harm to read it, and it's also absolutely fascinating. The definitive book on heavy weather sailing. A must read for every offshore cruiser. People who think it will never happen to them because they 'only make daytrips at sea' should also read this.
I am prepping for a Tortola to Newport RI passage in May and found this book, which is a classic by all accounts, fantastic. A must read for all nascent bluewater sailors. Great book, very interesting and gives good insight into what it took to sail a boat in mid-XX century. A classic for all who sail offshore.
Excellent reference text. Lots of good reviews here. So I will just add that it is fun to read and important information for all sailors. This is a great book about sailing in extreme circumstances. I'm planning to read it again whem I'm ready to take off for heavy weather sailing myself.

Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing
Since its publication over fifty years ago, Heavy Weather Sailing has remained the classic of navigating and surviving storms at sea. It is unique in its focus on the lessons learned by seasoned sailors in heavy weather conditions. Nowhere else will you find an opportunity like this to learn from the hard-won experience of others what works and what doesn't in surviving a storm at sea. The stories and their analyses are further augmented by advice- on boat stability and seaworthiness, spars and rigging, heavy-weather preparations and tactics, the use of drogues and sea anchors, meteorology and sea-state predictions, crew fitness for heavy weather, and more. You'll find well-proven methods for surviving bad weather at sea in powerboats and multihulls as well as monohull sailboats. This advice from leading seafarers has been compiled and edited by Peter Bruce, one of the world's most experienced sailors, who has assumed the book's editing from the late Adlard Coles.
Heavy Weather Sailing 7th edition
For 50 years Heavy Weather Sailing has been regarded as the ultimate international authority on surviving storms at sea aboard sailing and motor vessels. The first edition was compiled by Kaines Adlard Coles himself in Since then technology may have improved, but the weather certainly hasn't. This is the seventh updated edition, edited by racing yachtsman Peter Bruce, ensuring that in its 50th year the book remains as relevant and as essential as it has been for the previous five decades.
