Overview

The Atlantic Crossing Guide is a complete reference for anyone planning an Atlantic passage in their own boat. It is described by Yachting World magazine as 'An invaluable mixture of planning manual and pilot book, and an essential investment if you're planning to cross the Pond.'

From ideal timing, suitable boats, routes, methods of communication and provisioning to sources of regional weather information, hurricane tracks, currents and tides, departure and arrival ports, facilities on arrival and documentation required, the comprehensiveness of this new edition will both inspire dreamers and instill confidence in those about to depart. This is the definitive reference on the subject, relied upon by many thousands of cruisers crossing the Atlantic in both directions and packed with all the information they need.

About the Author

The RCC is a highly respected organisation of experienced cruising sailors who have sailed extensively all over the world. During their voyages they collect and research information relating to small boat pilotage and navigation, which is published in a series of yachtsmen's pilots and guides, of which this and The Pacific Crossing Guide (also published by Adlard Coles Nautical) are examples.
Jane Russell trained as a research biologist and taught science before undertaking a 5-year circumnavigation, via Panama and Suez, with her husband. More recently they took their two children on a 15-month return voyage down the Atlantic coast and around the Western Mediterranean. She has worked for the RCC Pilotage Foundation since 2007 and is their current Editor-in-Chief. She is the author of the 6th edition of The Atlantic Crossing Guide.
