Atlantic Crossing - A Planning Guide for Passagemakers - 3rd Edition
Answering all of the important questions,
this book attempts to allay any novices fears - not just about how to
sail an ocean for the first time - but also how to enjoy it.
Here are insights into the social as well as
nautical reality of fitting out, the comfort of having highly detailed
plans, the norm of impulsive decisions, the inside story of life with a
crew, coping with unexpected gales and calms, the live-or-die decision
to keep watches or not and the ports of call from Spain to Tobago via
the Atlantic islands and West Africa.
Your First Atlantic Crossing combines
practicalities with experience, and is now established as an essential
read for ocean novices and dreamers.
