    DREAM CRUISING DESTINATIONS.
    By vanessa Bird. Paperback, 0.65kg, 195mm x 253mm, 160 pages, colour charts and photos. Published 2015.
    In this book twenty classic cruises (around the South of France, Greece, Caribbean Islands, Thailand and more) are fully mapped, measured and costed to enable cruisers to plan and achieve their dream cruises. All showing how they are perfectly possible whatever your skill level. From weekend cruises around the British Isles to a voyage to Antarctica, and from Greek island cruises to an escape to the Virgin Islands, this book explores where to go, why, how to get there and what to expect en route.

    The book breaks down each cruise into important considerations, such as what type of boat is needed, what level of skill or qualifications are required, whether it is a suitable journey to undertake with a young family, what possible dangers might influence any decision (from extreme weather to the threat of piracy), and most obviously, cost.

    Each cruise is graded from 1 to 5 in each category for instant comparison, but the book proves none are impossible.

    Covering popular, exotic cruising destinations such as Thailand and the Virgin Islands, as well as unexpected, almost secret routes along the US Intracoastal Waterway and French canals, as well as proper adventures (including both Atlantic and Pacific crossings), this inspirational may be the starting point for the voyage of a lifetime.

    CORNELL'S OCEAN ATLAS
    By Jimmy & Ivan Cornell. Spiral Bound A3, 1.26 kgs, 445mm x 300mm, 120 pages, colour charts. Published 2011
    Pilot Charts, also known as routeing charts,have been the most important passage planning tool since the middle of the 19th century. The first systematic study of ships' sailing routes, and the weather conditions that affect them, was undertaken in the 19th Century by Lieutenant Maury of the US Navy, with the aid of shipmaster's logbooks. Much of the information contained in the Pilot charts that are in use today is still based on those observations and although they have been updated at regular intervals, whether due to the scarcity of reliable sources, the inaccuracy of the observations, or the climate changes that have occurred over the years, some of the information shown on those charts has now become inaccurate. To present as true a picture as possible of the actual conditions which prevails in todays oceans, the charts used in this atlas are based on the latest weather information gathered by a network of meteorological satrellites using data collected in the last 20 years.

    The Ocean charts in this atlas show the mean wind speed and direction for every month of the year in each of the World's oceans. The Atlas is aimed primarily at cruising sailors planning or undertaking an ocean passage.

    OCEAN PASSAGES AND LANDFALLS, 2nd edition.
    By Rod Heikell and Andy O'Grady. Hardback, 213mm x 303mm, 374 pages, full colour charts.
    This is a handbook for world cruisers. It provides invaluable passage-planning information for crossing the oceans, with discussions on climates, seasons, oceanography and the merits of different world cruising routes.
    The heart of the book is an ocean-by-ocean round up, and at the beginning of each of these sections is a description of routes, followed by information on the countries relevant to these routes. Details of formalities and regulations are then followed by essential information on key harbours and landfalls.
    This second edition has been thoroughly revised and enlarged and now features new sections on chosen areas and topics - the Atlantic circuit or Cruising in Ice, for instance. Here the opportunity has been taken to provide more informal commentary and observations based on first-hand experience. These sections are illustrated by the authors' colour photos, many of which have been taken during the production of this new edition and sent in from far-flung parts of the oceans: Rod Heikell in the South Pacific and the Torres Strait, and Andy O'Grady in Brazil and the high latitudes of Chile. As an up-to-date reference for world cruising this new edition of Ocean Passages and Landfalls sets the benchmark as both a practical reference and also as a book for dreamers.
