    Cornell's Ocean Atlas is the first significant innovation in pilot charts (an essential tool for passage planning) since pilot charts were developed by Lieutenant Maury of the US Navy in the mid-1800s The first and only pilot charts to be based on extensive near real-time geospatial and remote buoy sensing data from 1987 to the present measuring true surface wind and current Gathered from a network of OSCAR and other meteorological satellites, using NOAA and Earth and Space Research (ESR) data programs Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Series works hand-in-hand with World Voyage Planner, World Cruising Routes and World Cruising Destinations

    The first edition, published in 2012, was based on satellite observations undertaken in the previous 20 years (1991-2011) The second edition is fully revised and updated by incorporating data gathered during the last five years (2011-2016) The data now spans 25 years and also reflects any changes that have occurred during this latest period


    • Reformatted to incorporate a new feature: monthly windgrams for the most sailed ocean routes
      • Windgrams are a summary of wind strength and direction derived from the individual windroses along a specific ocean route
      • They will greatly simplify the work of planning specific ocean passages by showing at a glance a visual summary of wind conditions along the entire length of a chosen route.

    • Comprehensive description of weather conditions in every ocean
    • Sidebars with tactical suggestions have been added to the months when most passages are undertaken
    • Comments and tips on tactics, as well as weather overviews for each ocean, were contributed by meteorologists and routers specializing in those oceanic areas, such as Lee Chesneau, Peter Gibbs (BBC), Herb Hilgenberg, Bob McDavitt (New Zealand Met Office) and John Neal

    About the Author: Jimmy Cornell, experienced sailor and bestselling author, has teamed up with his son Ivan to produce a fully updated and revised second edition of Cornells' Ocean Atlas aimed at navigators planning an offshore voyage.
