    050926 Paradise Cay World Cruising Routes 978-1999722944

    Described as the bible of cruising sailors, World Cruising Routes is the definitive reference book for long-distance navigators and is based on first-hand knowledge during Jimmy Cornell's three circumnavigations. His 8th edition draws on the latest weather information available to provide a comprehensive aid for planning a safe voyage to any part of the world.

    Features:

    • More than 1,000 sailing routes in all the oceans of the world, from tropics to high latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic
    • Contains essential information on winds, currents, regional and seasonal weather as well as optimum times for individual passages
    • Assesses consequences of climate change on sailing routes and provides over 6,000 waypoints to assist in planning individual passages
    • A companion volume to both World Voyage Planner, which offers invaluable planning strategies and advice on long-distance voyaging, and World Cruising Destinations, which gives practical information on all the maritime nations of the world including details of cruising attractions, climate, formalities, marinas, repair facilities, charter operators, cruising guides and web sites
    • To ease the task of worldwide voyage planning, C-Planner, a route-planning application conceived by Ivan and Jimmy Cornell, has been designed as a companion to this edition
    • 8th edition thoroughly revised to meet the requirements and expectations of the current generation of offshore sailors working under global climate conditions vastly different than those in 1987 when the first editon was published
    • Includes climate information based on data gathered over the last two decades by meteorological satellites
      • See Cornells' Ocean Atlas, containing monthly pilot charts for all oceans based on last two decades of climate data (produced jointly with Ivan Cornell)
      • Highlights essential changes that have occurred in global weather systems over the years
    • Revisions have been dictated primarily by information contained in the latest pilot charts, which required a rethinking of some old established route planning tactics, many of which are no longer valid
    • Features addition of detailed waypoints on well-traveled routes and inclusion of alternative routes leading to popular cruising destinations
    • In direct response to current navigational methods, most routes — especially those leading to popular cruising destinations — have been redesigned to provide essential passage planning details
    • 8th edition features new routes to areas rarely explored by cruising yachts, from Greenland and Micronesia to China and the Northwest Passage
    • Windgrams, a new feature, depict a summary of monthly wind conditions along most commonly sailed routes
