"The Atlantic Crossing Guide" has become established as the standard reference work for all those planning an Atlantic passage.Review:
For many sailors and yachtsmen, the ultimate challenge is to cross an ocean by the power of nature alone. Months of preparation and sheer dedication are required for such an adventure, but anybody who wishes to accept the challenge, or indeed is curious for an insight into such an adventure, should purchase The Atlantic Crossing Guide.
This book is more like an ongoing project as the original publication was produced by the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage Foundation in 1983 by the late Phil Allen and has now reached its 4th edition under the guidance of Hammick and McLaren. Every aspect of long-haul sailing is addressed the 230 pages, ranging from preparing the boat and equipment, navigation and communications, and suggested sailing routes. Weather guidelines are given for both the north and south Atlantic and advice of how to cope with extremes of weather. There are also weather and coastal charts of some of the main harbours on both sides of the Atlantic in England, Spain, Portugal, United States and even Bermuda and South Africa.
This is a thorough guide for anybody who is considering a transatlantic voyage and will give all the information you need to begin your preparation for the adventure. --Steven Payne
