Quick Start Circumnavigation Guide: Proven Route and Sailing Itinerary Timed for Weather

Feel like you are on your world cruise with this overview guidebook for sailing the world co-authored by Captain Charlie Simon and, his wife, Cathy, while on their sailboat Celebrate, a Taswell 58. Easy-to-read, well-organized and entertaining, at the end of reading this book one could ask, "Do you want to take this trip?" The emphatic answer is, "Yes. Lets the voyage begin!"

For those fantasizing about a longer sailing voyage, a Pacific Ocean cruise pr more general world travel, this book gives readers a excellent place to start. Although possibilities are limitless, most cruising circumnavigators follow a basic route similar to the one described in the book.

Ports detailed along the way include Panama Canal transit, a memorable start to the reader's journey. Many aerial/satellite port diagrams, local photos, and excerpts from the ship's blog tell readers what to expect as the route continues to the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji, and other islands across the South Pacific. The Simons also chronicle their stops at Australia, Bali, and passing through rough weather in the Indian Ocean; then going on to South Africa and appreciating benign conditions crossing the South Altantic to Brazil and back to the Caribbean. Colorful stories and photographs from the ports of entry get the reader enthusiastic and build up a "Let's do this!" mind-set and the encouraging, positive tone should inspire readers.
