DOWNWIND AROUND AUSTRALIA & AFRIKA

DOWNWIND AROUND AUSTRALIA & AFRIKA

Meer info

So many of the sailing guides look at crossing the Pacific from east to west or sailing from Europe across or down the Atlantic. Here is a book that looks at the traditional route from Australia, across the Indian Ocean, south about South Africa and through the Atlantic to Europe or the Americas.
The route described has been free of man-made hassles and is virtually all reaching and running. It also avoids a number of areas where the local people have been less than friendly to yachts. Although the sailing time may be longer you are compensated by easier sailing, many delightful anchorages and the best ocean sailing in the world in the South Atlantic. The coasts of North West Australia and Namibia are still hardly known and provide interesting cruising grounds.
Warwick Clay is the author of South Pacific Anchorages and provides the same excellent sketch maps of anchorages with descriptions of ports and anchorages and the facilities available
