Environment Canada senior meteorologist Peter J. Bowyer has compiled a comprehensive and up-to-date work that translates the complexities of marine weather in Atlantic Canada.

Canada’s East Coast has some of the harshest and most fickle weather in the world; from the gusty fjords of Labrador to the fog banks off Southern Nova Scotia. Marine weather is a fact of life for those who work, live, and travel on the seas. Whether you’re a weekend sailor or a seasoned mariner, Where the Wind Blows will help you better predict common weather hazards and conditions, and get the most out of marine weather forecasts. With nearly 400 full-colour maps, diagrams and photographs, this guide is an indispensable tool for safe and well-informed passage through Atlantic Canada’s waters.
