This stylish handbook from the RCC Pilotage Foundation covers the spectacular cruising grounds around Cape Horn, including Chile, the Beagle Channel, the Falkland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Including some of the most dangerous waters in the world, from the treacherous Cape Horn to the icebound anchorages of Antarctica, it offers not only inspiration and encouragement but enough detail to plan the voyage of a lifetime. Broadcaster and author Paul Heiney has incorporated a strategic range of navigational information from his voyage to the area alongside that gathered by other experienced sailors. Key passages, harbours and anchorages are described in an informative and enlightening way alongside useful sketch plans. Full-colour photographs and lively texts give a strong sense of the drama and magnificence of an area that is increasingly of interest to cruising yachts. This book is not only a vital practical resource for these waters but also a source of inspiration for those considering a future visit.
