The Atlantic Crossing Guide has become established as the standard reference for anyone planning an Atlantic passage, whether via the trade wind route to the Caribbean or to Europe from the United States. Refined and developed over the past twenty years, this new edition, now in full colour, contains the latest information in three clear sections. Preparations: advice on suitable boats and equipment, with details specific to ocean cruising and warm weather sailing, navigation, communications and crew issues, paperwork, provisioning, watchkeeping and safety considerations. Passages and Landfalls; detailed information on seasons and timing, wind and weather, hurricanes, currents and tides, plus clearly defined routes across the Atlantic, along the bordering coasts and between the Atlantic Island groups. Port information: comprehensive selection of ports and port information for destinations on both sides of the Atlantic, suitable for Landfall or departure.
