Good Reads for Wind-Still Sailing Days

Wood Model Kit, Sailboat

Weather predictions are making it quite easy to plan your sailing trips perfectly.  You can choose days where you would like to enjoy sipping champagne as the sun set’s on the horizon when the sea is calm and the wind is still or you can pack for a rough day of extreme sailing when the wind is strong and the sea is rough.  But even the best of seamen and the best of weather forecasters are wrong about the sea weather every now and then.  If you are experiencing a sudden wind-still day for which you didn’t plan then there isn’t much you can do on the sea other than stare into the depths of blue.  A few good reads on your tab will give you something great to do while you relax or enjoy a tan during these quiet days.
