Also, I would like to mention one practical book that keeps me in a constant state of dreaming: World Voyage Planner: Planning a voyage from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world by Jimmy Cornell. Because one day I am planning to go sailing around the world.

Amazon description

Jimmy Cornell is the undisputed authority on long distance voyaging. In the new edition of this book, he and his son Ivan help 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. Amongst many important aspects, Jimmy and Ivan consider:

  • World weather systems
  • Strategies for sailing long or short circuits in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans
  • The pros and cons of different routes at different times of year (taking into account weather, currents, wind directions and strengths, likelihood of fog, icebergs, gales, etc)
  • The pros and cons, attractions and dangers of different routes (such as the problem of piracy)
  • Practicalities (repair facilities, common gear breakage on extended voyages, places to leave the boat to fly home if necessary, health considerations, provisioning for a long trip, personal safety measures, and much more)
  • Jimmy's top ten list of common things that ruin a voyage

Written from a completely international point of view, World Voyage Planner can help sailors from any country going to any other country to achieve a safe and enjoyable cruise.
