Essential Sailing Destinations explores a wide and varied range of sailing areas, including the multicultural Mediterranean; the havens, rivers, and bays of America's East Coast; and the balmy seas of Australasia and the Indian Ocean, peppered with some of the world's most stunning archipelagos.
Each entry includes a locator map and useful at-a-glance information, including best crusing months, local languages and currency. Destinations are rated as to navigational difficulty, family friendliness, facilities for diving, shoreside eating, and sightseeing.
