Watch for our new title, coming soon! Pacific Crossing Notes: a Sailor’s Guide to the Coconut Milk Run covers everything from preparation, weather, and safety to detailed information on the island groups of the Coconut Milk Run: the trade-wind route from the Americas to Australia.

Along with information on clearing-in procedures, availability of supplies, and top anchorages and sights, this book covers Panama, the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia. Separate sections describe a trip down the US East Coast, the Panama Canal, New Zealand, and Australia (including tips on selling a boat there for a one-way trip).

This guide strives to balance facts with flavors, making it a book to keep you company during the countdown to your own passage as well as a practical guide to pull out as you face each successive landfall in the voyage of a lifetime.

Release date: February 1, 2015 on Amazon.com (ebook edition first, print edition follows in March 2015).
