Inhaltsangabe: Painstakingly researched, massive guide to language, currency, customs and quarantine regs., culture, climate, bonds, post and medical facilities, chandleries, yacht clubs, radio communications, cruising permits, visas, much more for over 180 countries visited by yachtsmen. A great guide whether readers be novices setting out with their very first boat or mariners with long experience at sea.
World Cruising Handbook can best be described as a nautical tourist guide. Here you will find all you need to know about the most popular cruising destinations around the world, from Australia to Antigua, Turkey to Tahiti. Or, if you prefer sailing off the beaten track, read about lonely Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic or the remote islands of the North Pacific Ocean.
If on the other hand you're just dreaming of traveling, the coloroful introduction to each country will give you a taste of what it's like to help you make up your mind where to go, while the more practical sections will tell you what to expect on arrival. Realizing how much time sailors spend clearing in and out of port and how bureaucracy and restrictions can mar an otherwise pleasurable cruise, Jimmy Cornell gives this information special attention.
World Cruising Handbook is the companion volume to World Cruising Routes--essential references for anyone planning a voyage anywhere in the world.
