Pacific Crossing Guide 3RD Edition

The Definitive Guide to Crossing the Planet's Largest Ocean

The Pacific Crossing Guide has guided thousands of mariners across the wide Pacific. Now in its third edition, this trusted classic provides the latest on major routes, piloting information for hundreds of ports and approaches, as well as the latest on rallies, atoll navigation, and Pacific festivals you don't want to miss. The challenges of modern weather patterns (el Nino and la Nina), the unique aspects of Pacific weather, updated communications, and the latest country clearing in steps are explored in depth, as well as vessel stability, current and wind patterns unique to the Pacific, the largest body of water on the planet. Written under the watchful of the RCC Pilotage Foundation, the Pacific Crossing Guide is the definitive word on the best routes and seasons to tackle this ultimate sailing challenge.

Extensively illustrated with Navionics harbor charts, and all important mileage charts and routes maps, this is both a hardcore planning guide and a gorgeous dreamer's bible.
