Pacific Crossing Notes: A Sailor's Guide to the Coconut Milk Run (Paperback)
Sail away on the voyage of a lifetime with the help of this practical & informative guide.
Pacific Crossing Notes covers everything from preparation, weather, and safety to detailed information on the island groups of the Coconut Milk Run: the trade-wind route from the Americas to Australia.
Along with information on clearing-in procedures, availability of supplies, and top anchorages and sights, this book covers Panama, the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia. Separate sections describe a trip down the US East Coast, the Panama Canal, New Zealand, and Australia (including tips on selling a boat there for a one-way trip).
This guide strives to balance facts with flavors, making it a book to keep you company during the countdown to your own passage as well as a practical guide to pull out as you face each successive landfall in the voyage of a lifetime - and all for less than the price of a single issue of a sailing magazine
