Synopsis: The Pacific Crossing Guide will be invaluable for anyone planning a Pacific crossing, whether as part of a circumnavigation or to explore the Pacific islands. A sister volume to The Atlantic Crossing Guide, which has already established itself as the standard reference work for cruisers planning an Atlantic passage, this book follows a similar format by giving first-hand advice on a wide range of practical matters. Part I contains a wealth of information on preparing the boat, her equipment, and crew; the weather and seasons; provisioning; ocean cruising techniques; health matters; radio communications; and helpful information about the South Sea Islanders. Part II examines the choice of routes, both east to west and west to east, and provides a comprehensive overview of each of the island groups through which the routes pass. Part III gives landfall information with detailed charts for 43 harbors. Included are the principal arrival and departure points in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Panama, New Zealand and Australia. Any reader who is undecided on whether or not to undertake a Pacific crossing will find it hard to resist, having sensed the enthusiasm that emanates from these pages.
About the Author: Michael Pocock has been a yacht designer since 1975 and is a member of the Royal Cruising Club and the Ocean Cruising Club. He and his wife Pat recently spent three and a half years crossing and cruising the Pacific, logging over 20,000 miles and visiting countless islands.
