Beschreibung

From the islands of the Aegean to the Straits of Gibraltar, the allure of the Med is unsurpased. No other cruising ground marries cast troves of shoreside history with unique and easily accessible cuisine, or islands. Although the Mediterranean provides wonderfully diverse cruising opportunities, it can also deliver surprises to the unwary. Rod Heikell, the acknowledged expert on Mediterranean sailing, provides sound advice in this fourth edition, with updates on: anchoring, berthing bow or stern-to, what weather to expect (and how to avoid the worst of it), facilities and the coasts of keeping a boat around the Med, plus information on navigation, popular routes, formalities, and what to expect ashore.

Each country around the Mediterranean is covered, and there's even a handy section on shoe-string cruising for those on a tight budget.

This is the perfect guide for anyone cruising in the Mediterranean, conveying the magic of this unique sea as well as giving practical, first-hand advice on sailing in these enticing waters.

Rod Heikell has spent over 40 years cruising the coasts and islands of the Mediterranean. Having sailed his own as well as charter and delivery yachts across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean and to South East Asia, it is to the Mediterranean that he always returns. He is the acknowledged expert on Mediterranean sailing and his pilots are referred to by the cruising sailors who rely on them as 'the bible'.
