Every serious sailor dreams of the great adventure of offshore cruising. In this extensive guide, Jim Howard, who has been cruising the oceans of the world for many years, shares the knowledge and skills necessary to turn the dream into reality.

For easy reference, this important new handbook is divided into four parts: the boat, the systems and equipment, the voyage and in port. All the important topics for planning extensive offshore cruises are covered: building or buying a boat for offshore cruising, size considerations, rig and hull design, spars and rigging, deck layout, cockpit, below decks, engines, electronics, sails, stowage, heavy weather sailing, navigation, safety, harbors and anchorages, and much, much more.
