Editorial Reviews

Yachting Monthly
In essence, this is a richly illustrated sailing-specific guide book. The color photos are great and will definitely whet the appetite. But the text entries, which come from some of the world's best known boating writers, will make you even hungrier for adventure....All you need to do is add water!
Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal
Sometimes, when it comes to cruising trips, it's not so much a matter of 'where to go' as it is 'how to get there.' In Essential Sailing Destinations: The World's Most Spectacular Cruising Areas no stone is left unturned, no haven unexplored. Sixteen sailors weigh in on the best places to cruise, including the coast of Australia, the Indian Ocean, Mexico's Gold Coast, Ireland and Scotland. Each entry includes full-color photos of the destination as well as a locator map, best cruising months, local languages and currency. Compiled in a wide hard-cover binding, each destination is rated by its navigational difficulty, family friendliness and facilities for diving, sightseeing and dining. A full index also includes useful Web sites and suggestions for further reading.
Wooden Boat
