By Jimmy Cornell
Published by Adlard Coles Nautical (September 2012)
ISBN: 9781408140291

This new book is for planning a voyage from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world.

Jimmy Cornell, whose books are found on board every offshore yacht, has added the definitive book on voyage planning to his other successful titles dedicated to long distance cruising: World Cruising Routes, World Cruising Destinations and Cornell's Ocean Atlas.

The main aim of World Voyage Planner is to help sailors plan a voyage from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world, with suggestions of alternative routes to certain destinations, recommended times and favourable seasons, tropical storm areas and critical months, suggested detours to attractive places, and strategically located ports of call to be used in an emergency.

Based on comprehensive surveys with over 100 long distance sailors, World Voyage Planner helps the would-be voyager plan their trip step-by-step. Aimed at those seriously contemplating an extended cruise and those dreaming about the possibility, this book will give an idea of what is involved in developing the right strategy.

Jimmy Cornell has influenced the contemporary cruising scene more than any other sailor. Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dreams of offshore cruising with the help of his books. He has sailed over 200,000 miles, including three circumnavigations. He is the author of World Cruising Routes, World Cruising Destinations and A Passion for the Sea, all published by Adlard Coles Nautical.
