Product Description

Jimmy Cornell's latest book is based on his extensive knowledge of offshore cruising gained from an experience that stretches over four decades. Jimmy has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world, including three circumnavigations as well as two voyages to Antarctica and a successful transit of the Northwest Passage. While primarily aimed at sailors who are planning or making preparations for a longer voyage, this book will also appeal to tested ocean navigators as well as weekend sailors. The book's attractive style, with 500 excellent photographs from the author's vast collection, should be equally appealing to dreamers. Approximately two thirds of the book deals with practical matters and covers all subjects of interest to anyone planning to leave on an offshore voyage. The other third of the book describes highlights from the author's circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica, a transpacific passage from Antarctica to Alaska, or the challenges of the Northwest Passage. The chapters alternate between the two, with one technical chapter being followed by a cruising narrative. 200,000 Miles is based on Jimmy Cornell's book A Passion for the Sea published in five language editions in 2007 and now out of print. In the intervening decade Jimmy Cornell has launched a new series of offshore rallies as well as a new Aventura conceived by him as a yacht perfectly suited for both tropical and high latitude sailing. While preserving some of the main elements of the previous book, the newly gained experience of being once again in close contact with sailors taking part in his events, and the lessons learned from his two attempts at the Northwest Passage, have resulted in a more comprehensive and up-to-date book.
