Re: Jimmy Cornell's books.
We don't have World Cruising Routes as we can't afford it. Anyway, we want to decide our own route
, not go round the world
Sometimes we hear what Jimmy says and we still do our own thing.
is a great example: He says to head
south till you hit Equador before you turn towards the Galapagos
. We, of course, being our independant muffins we are decided not to waste the sea miles but go in a straight line.
Who was right?
OK well we did still get there! It just took a little longer!!
You may as well say the compass
is wrong before I would say Jimmy Cornell is wrong.
And World Cruising Handbook in one book gives you a little bit about every country you are likely to go to. It can't do all about every anchorage, but will get you to a place where you can get local charts, pilots and advice
