One of the most influential cruising yachtsmen writing today, Jimmy Cornell has sailed over 200,000 miles on all the oceans of the world, including three circumnavigations and voyages to the Arctic and Antarctic. His successful guide to sailing around the world, World Cruising Routes, has helped many aspiring voyagers turn their dreams into reality and follow in his footsteps.
This substantial new handbook profiles every cruising destination in the world and is intended as a partner to World Cruising Routes. Every destination is detailed comprehensively, with information on cruising attractions, history, culture, local laws, regulations and formalities, facilities available, plus public holidays and events, emergency telephone numbers, and much more. There is also detailed information on climate, including average monthly temperatures, rainfall and tropical storm seasons. Lavishly illustrated throughout, it is not only a must-have onboard reference work for long distance sailors, but will undoubtedly inspire the adventurous to sail where they have never ventured before.
