Close to the wind : the Beaufort scale by Peter Malone( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains how the Beaufort scale is used to measure the force of the wind especially at sea. In 1810, a British naval officer and surveyor named Francis Beaufort developed a scale to give sailors a common language for describing the wind. From 0 (calm) to 12 (hurricane), stunning artwork and jaunty prose show what life at sea must have been like for a young boy serving as a midshipman in the 1800s. As William sails from Naples to the Caribbean, we learn intriguing historical information and nautical terminology, and witness how the wind affected day-to-day life on a ship. Detailed illustrations show the wind at work, and readers will be engrossed and fascinated as they watch the storm develop in magnificent full-color paintings
