The Pacific Crossing Guide is a complete reference for anyone contemplating sailing the Pacific in their own boat. From ideal timing, suitable boats, routes, methods of communication, health, and provisioning to seasonal weather, departure and arrival ports, facilities, likely costs and dangers, the comprehensiveness of this new edition will both inspire dreamers, and instill confidence in those about to depart.

This new edition has been completely restructured with Part I covering thorough preparation for a Pacific crossing, and Part II covering Pacific weather patterns, major routes, and landfall ports, with useful website links throughout. There are completely new sections on rallies, coral atolls, and atoll navigation, the cyclone season and laying up, use of electronic charts, satellite phones versus HF radio, ongoing maintenance, and Pacific festivals.

Completely updated, expanded, and refreshed for the new generation of Pacific cruisers, this is the definitive reference, relied upon by many thousands of cruisers.
