Wink Essential Crossing Guides for Pacific Cruising

Dear sailors,

We are currently in Fort Lauderdale preparing our boat for a Pacific cruising season. We wondered if anyone out there can recommend any cruising/crossing guides for the Pacific.

Re: Essential Crossing Guides for Pacific Cruising

What areas/islands of the vast Pacific do you have in mind? the coconut milk run? then Soggy Paws' website is a good start:

Re: Essential Crossing Guides for Pacific Cruising

i found david stanleys "south pacific handbook" invaluable,not sure if this is the most recent edition,see link.
lots of really good info,not a yachting guide as such,but masses of relevent info you will not get in a yachting guide.

South Pacific Handbook with Special Galapagos Supplement, David Stanley, on eBay!
