About the Author:

Jimmy Cornell has influenced the contemporary cruising scene more than any other sailor. He was the founder of the cruising rally concept over 15 years ago with the ARC Transatlantic rally, the Transarc and numerous Round the World Rallies in which over 15,000 sailors have participated. Sailing continues to be Jimmy's passion, and in the last 25 years he has sailed more than 150,000 miles in all oceans of the world.

Review:

'By the time a book reaches it's sixth edition you can be pretty sure it's worth buying' Sailing Today (November 2008) 'Jimmy Cornell's 'World Cruising Routes' has been my principle source for planning my circumnavigation and weather routing. It simply told me when I can safely be in any ocean of the world and for how long.' Mike Harker, circumnavigator on 'Wanderlust' 'Jimmy Cornell is without a doubt a foremost authority on world cruising ... Cornell's new book is the perfect companion for World Cruising Routes and like Cornell's guidebook to the world's oceans, World Cruising Destinations is sure to become a well-worn classic' John Snyder, Ocean Navigator Online, (March 2011)
