This newly updated, comprehensive cruising guide to all the world's oceans is a valuable reference for cruising sailors and armchair dreamers. More than 500 sailing routes are detailed, including 40 new routes to such high-latitude destinations as Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Alaska, and Antarctica.

The book includes 150 pages of two-color maps, updated GPS coordinates for navigation, and route-by-route descriptions of weather and hazards.

Dal retro di copertina:

World Cruising Routes is a comprehensive guide to nearly 1000 sailing routes covering all the oceans of the world, from the tropical South Seas to the high latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic. The book is geared specifically to the needs of cruising sailors and contains essential information on winds, currents, regional and seasonal weather as well as valuable suggestions concerning optimum times for individual routes. Most of the materials was gathered during the author's two circumnavigations and supplemented by sailors taking part in Jimmy Cornell's offshore rallies.

All the necessary information for planning a voyage in any of the world's oceans has been brought together here in a single volume. This thoroughly revised new edition features new data collected by the author on his recent voyage from Antarctica to Alaska via Tahiti and Hawaii.

To simplify the planning of individual routes, some 6000 essential waypoints are listed, and specific routing suggestions given to maximize the chances of encountering favorable conditions en route. Because cruising boats now venture further afield, main ports of entry as well as essential landfall information are given with each route to assist the planning of passages from beginning to end.

The continuing success of World Cruising Routes is due not only to its unparalleled value as an excellent aid to route planning, but equally to its lasting appeal to those who are not yet ready to leave on an offshore voyage and who find, in its pages, a ready source of pleasant dreams of voyages to come.

A companion volume to World Cruising Routes is World Cruising Handbook, a comprehensive cruising guide to over 180 countries around the world.

The information in this book is continuously updated on, Jimmy Cornell's website for cruising sailors.
