The Atlantic Crossing Guide has become established as the standard reference for anyone planning an Atlantic passage, whether via the trade wind route to the Caribbean or to Europe from the United States.

Refined and developed over the past twenty-five years, this new edition is now divided into two sections, the preparations section covers topics from advice on suitable boats and equipment to watchkeeping and safety considerations, whilst the passages and landfalls section covers topics from seasons and timing to a comprehensive selection of ports and port information for destinations on both sides of the Atlantic.

The 6th edition has a much wider geographical scope, and includes introductory information on peripheral cruising grounds, routes down the coast of Morocco and via West Africa, the route to Brazil, the whole Caribbean Basin, an overview of the Intracoastal Waterway and possible routes via Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

No other book contains so much information for planning and setting out on an Atlantic crossing. Whether you are contemplating your first ocean adventure or have multiple crossings under your belt, The Atlantic Crossing Guide will be an invaluable planning tool and an indispensable reference once underway.

The RCC Pilotage Foundation is a voluntary, charitable organisation providing pilot books and passage planning advice worldwide.
