Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The complete reference for anyone planning an Atlantic passage in their own boat. Last updated in 2003, [prior to this edition] topics include choosing a boat, when to go, where to go from and to, documentation and much more. An investment for serious cruisers.” —Practical Boat Owner Magazine

“Considered one of the most thorough and useful guides...giving you everything from prevailing currents and winds at various times of the year right through to fairly detailed descriptions of a whole range of potential landfalls and stopover ports...Also has a useful section on preparing for the trip...This book has been around for 25 years and there's a reason for that as it has developed into an invaluable guide.” —Sailing Today
