A Cruising Guide to the Lesser Antilles
by Frank Virgintino (in 3 volumes)
Published by
Available as a free download (July 2012)

A Cruising Guide to the Lesser Antilles covers :-
the Virgin Islands in Volume I;
the Leeward Islands in Volume II;
and the Windward Islands in Volume III.
The three volumes taken together comprise over 620 pages drawn from more than 40 years of cruising the Lesser Antilles by the author.

In his classic style, Virgintino not only gets readers to their cruising destinations, but prepares cruisers for what they will find once they’ve dropped the hook. From the likelihood of getting a mooring or a boat repair to an assessment of sociability vs. solitude in the different anchorages, to cultural differences great and small; Virgintino tells it like it is from the vantage point of his longtime love for cruising the Caribbean.

It is the author’s hope that this guide will enable cruisers to find the hidden treasures that so many overlook even on the beaten track.

For a more in depth discussion of what is available in the entire Caribbean to cruising sailors, the author’s recent book, "A Thinking Man’s Guide to Voyages South: the Many Facets of Caribbean Cruising", offers a comprehensive review. It is available as an ePub at Kindle and other ePub stores.

To access all three volumes of Virgintino’s "A Cruising Guide to the Lesser Antilles" as well as the author’s other guides, visit now to download them free as PDFs. The three volumes will be available at your favorite ePub bookstore in September 2012.
