This comprehensive third volume in Jimmy Cornell's acclaimed and successful World Cruising series is the ultimate authority on boats, gear, and techniques for long-distance cruising under sail.

Distilled from surveys of 15,000 sailors by the world's leading promoter of blue-water voyaging, it answers in detail the most frequently asked questions on world cruising, including what boats people are sailing, what navigation and seamanship practices work best, what equipment is really essential, and more.

Customer Reviews

Cornell is simply the best at pulling data together

 on June 12, 2013
By Michael L. Graham
One of the biggest problems about making a long term voyage is what works and what doesn’t. What equipment do you need, what brand of genset or watermaker, for example, seems to have the best life. Cornell has taken various surveys among all of those who have participated in the various rallies he has supervised, and pulled the data together in a very interesting way. I recommend it for reading for those who are going, and those who are thinking about going.

Cornell offers his own viewpoints as well as those of others, does a good job of labeling facts vs. options, and answers a lot of questions I had about cruising. Safety equipment, storms, piracy, dangerous areas, firearms, and communications are all covered well. Common equipment failures are given, along with statistics to back them up. For example, how often does the mast of a cuising yacht really fail, and how?
