Product description

Review

"This book reads like an easy conversation with a friend and covers the gamut, from ways to gain experience and choose and outfit your boat to radio nets, offshore weather, and tropical landfalls. If this passage is in your dreams, put this guide on your bookshelf." - Cruising World Magazine

“Part cruising guide, part personal journey, Pacific Cruising Notes combines to provide a conversational and informative resource that will be easy to come back to again and again.” - Blue Water Sailing Magazine

“...a very readable cruising guide that covers everything from buying and equipping a boat, preparing for a long passage, understanding weather, and safety at sea to detailed information about the islands along the route. Whether you’re an armchair sailor looking for a good story or a voyager contemplating a crossing of the world’s largest ocean, Pacific Crossing Notes is worthy of a place in your library.” - Windcheck Magazine

“…an attractively priced, no-nonsense guide filled with useful information. A recommended and delightful read.” - Ocean Navigator

Product Description

Sail away on the voyage of a lifetime with the help of this practical & informative guide.
Pacific Crossing Notes covers everything from preparation, weather, and safety to detailed information on the island groups of the Coconut Milk Run: the trade-wind route from the Americas to Australia. Along with information on clearing-in procedures, availability of supplies, and top anchorages and sights, this book covers Panama, the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia. Separate sections describe a trip down the US East Coast, the Panama Canal, New Zealand, and Australia (including tips on selling a boat there for a one-way trip).

This guide strives to balance facts with flavors, making it a book to keep you company during the countdown to your own passage as well as a practical guide to pull out as you face each successive landfall in the voyage of a lifetime – and all for less than the price of a single issue of a sailing magazine!

"An attractively priced, no-nonsense guide filled with useful information... A recommended and delightful read." - Ocean Navigator Magazine

"If this passage is in your dreams, put this guide on your bookshelf." - Cruising World Magazine
