The Caribbean is probably the biggest and best cruising ground in the world. Wonderful climate, beautiful islands, nice people and for the most part very inexpensive. With predictable weather and such good sailing winds it  makes the Mediterranean look like a very poor relation. 

 

How to get there - how to get home- details of all the Island groups and anchorages. 

Pictures and chart details together with descriptions of the islands.

 

Pictures, charts, distances, links to marina's and faculties, weather and places to visit and what to see.......

 

 There are two versions the first is for boats coming from Europe and the second is an American Version for boats heading south through the Bahamas & Turks and Caicos.

 

To download this ebook visit

Why not take your boat to the Mediterranean next summer?

 

GENTLE SAILING ROUTE

 TO THE

MEDITERRANEAN

 There are several ways of getting your boat to the Mediterranean. On the back of a lorry, via the French canals, four or five day’s non stop across the Bay of Biscay then down the Portuguese coast or spend the summer or two, gently coasting southwards, enjoying the harbours, cities, towns and villages of France Spain and Portugal.

 

This is not a pilot book, rather a passage plan and guide to the nicer places between the South Coast of the UK to the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.  It can all be done in easy stages, to suit a lightly crewed boat, with perhaps only a couple of people on board who are without ‘offshore’ experience.  Actually, it is a lovely way to explore a lot of delightful foreign places.
