Most yachtsmen dream about cruising to an exotic destination; this is the book that will turn dreamers into planners. Twenty classic cruises are fully mapped, measured, and budgeted, showing how they are perfectly possible whatever your skill level. From weekend cruises around the British Isles to a voyage to Antarctica, from Greek island cruises to an escape to the Virgin Islands, this book explores where to go, how to get there, and what to expect en route.

The book breaks down each cruise into important considerations, such as which type of boat is needed, what level of skill or qualifications are required, whether it is a suitable journey to undertake with a young family, possible dangers--from extreme weather to the threat of piracy--and, most obviously, cost. Each cruise is graded from one to five in each category for instant comparison, but the book proves that none are impossible.

Covering popular exotic cruising destinations, such as Thailand and the Virgin Islands, as well as unexpected, almost secret routes along the U.S. Intracoastal Waterway and French canals, and transoceanic adventures, including Atlantic and Pacific crossings, this inspirational guide might be the starting point for the voyage of a lifetime.
