About the Author:

Jimmy Cornell has sailed 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica and Alaska. As the founder of the successful ARC transatlantic rally, Jimmy Cornell is credited with having devised the offshore cruising rally concept. Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water sailing with the help of his books, among them the bestseller World Cruising Routes. While working on his next book World Voyage Planner, to be published in 2012, he asked Ivan s help in producing up-to-date pilot charts to illustrate the voyages described in the book. This atlas is the result of their cooperation.

Review:

This publication should really be considered an essential item of yacht gear rather than a book. ... the data behind this book is all under 20 years old. This is an important factor as climate change means that the days are gone when publishers can get away with basing predictions on 50 year old climatic trends. --Sailing Today

Seasoned voyagers know that pilot charts are one of the most valuable tools for passage-making. By employing the latest technology and weather information compiled via satellite over the last two decades and by quadrupling the number of roses on their clearly illustrated collection of transoceanic charts, the Cornells have not only updated a valuable resource but also substantially broadened it --Cruising World

This incredible atlas is the best climatological set of information that mariners operating at all levels from professional merchant master mariners to the casual cruisers MUST have alongside Bowditch. Well laid out by the consummate professional that Jimmy Cornell is. Bravo Zulu! --Lee Chesneau
