Based on the author's Sailing an Atlantic Circuit, this practical, how-to guide to the planning, preparation and execution of a passage is both a helpful and an inspirational book for all sailors considering an offshore or ocean passage. A vastly experienced Atlantic ocean sailor, Alastair Buchan looks in detail at three specific passages (a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, a passage from the Eastern Seaboard of the USA to the Caribbean, and cruising around the Caribbean itself). The advice, ranging from choosing/refitting a boat, insurance, safety, training crew and route planning to watch keeping, weather routeing, heavy weather strategies and disaster management, is applicable to any other open sea passage and will be invaluable to any would-be long distance sailors. Illustrated throughout with helpful diagrams, maps, and inspirational photography, this is an essential handbook for all sailors aspiring to make an offshore or ocean passage.
