Omtale World Voyage Planner
Jimmy Cornell is the undisputed authority on long distance voyaging.
In his new book, he helps the would-be
voyager plan their trip step by step. Aimed at those seriously contemplating an extended cruise (and those dreaming about the
possibility), this book will give an idea of what is involved in
developing the right strategy. Amongst many
other aspects, Jimmy looks at:

- World weather systems

- Strategies for sailing long or short circuits in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans

- The pros and cons of different routes at different times of year
(taking into account weather, timings, wind directions and strengths,
likelihood of fog, icebergs, gales, etc)

- The pros and cons, attractions and dangers of different routes (such
as the problem of piracy)

- Practicalities (repair facilities, common gear breakage on extended
voyages, places to leave the boat to fly home if necessary, health
considerations, provisioning for a long trip,
personal safety measures, and much more)

- Jimmy's top ten list of common things that ruin a voyage

Written from an international point of view, Jimmy Cornell's World Voyage Planner can help sailors from any country going to any other to achieve a safe and enjoyable cruise.
