The Proving Ground

Weather forecasting and yacht racing have an unfortunate collide in this account of an Australian yacht race. I find these sorts of books to be fascinating.

As an outsider to the tragedy I thought the author did a good job of telling all sides of the story, conveying the information in a factual and non-confrontational manner. He managed to tell what happened without unjustly accusing anyone. I found this to be a good book.

I also enjoyed the section where he talked about the implications for future weather forecasting.
