The Definitive Guide for Sailors and Powerboaters

The coast of Central and Southern California offers some of the most extraordinary—and challenging—cruising in the world. Whether you're planning a cruise of the Channel Islands, a weekend on Catalina Island, or an offshore passage around Point Conception, you'll want expert guidance. The Cruising Guide to Central and Southern California provides comprehensive coverage of all the anchorages and harbors from the Golden Gate Bridge to Ensenada, Mexico, including the offshore islands. It includes historical background, information on local weather and cruising conditions, passagemaking strategies for sailors and powerboaters, and photographs of all ports and anchorages as they appear from the water. Brian Fagan has sailed these waters for over thirty years and has visited every port and anchorage in the book, most of them many times. His Cruising Guide to Central and Southern California will give you all the information you need for a safe, comfortable, and spectacular cruise.

"One of the best cruising guides we have ever seen."—National Fisherman

"This is the most complete set of sailing directions to come off the presses since the first coast surveys were attempted in the early 1800s."—SEA magazine
