Caribbean Passagemaking: A Cruiser's Guide By Les Weatheritt Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


The chain of islands from the Virgins to the southern Lesser Antilles is one of the most desirable tropical cruising grounds as well as the most accessible for North American and European sailors. The Caribbean Sea is usually benign but the conditions are very different from your home waters--you must learn to sail with the grain of wind, weather, current, and climate, or these forgiving waters will turn into a punishingly rough old sea. This updated third edition of Caribbean Passagemaking is an entertaining mine of information for the sun-soaked passage planner as well as the dreamer back home. Here is the full, vital background to help skipper and crew enjoy sailing the Caribbean islands.

About the Author

From novice schooner-hand to transatlantic navigator, Les Weatheritt, a research economist, has sailed and lived among the islands of the Caribbean for a decade, crossing the Atlantic to and from Europe. A self-taught sailor, Les and his partner Gloria keep a sixty-foot narrow boat near Bath, Somerset, as their base in England (when they're not sailing the world). He is also the author of Summer Storms: A Caribbean sailing thriller.
