This is the first of the two-volume set of the Southeast Asia Cruising Guide to reach a second edition. It is the only guide that covers the entire length and breadth of a region frequently visited by round-the-world sailors, many of whom leave Australia to head west. This edition concentrates on the most- frequented routes and includes the most popular stops. There are hundreds of possible anchorages, brief details of the most popular are usefully summarized in tables. Introductory sections cover planning and the last part of the book deals with more general topics including advice on provisioning and on problems that are often faced by cruisers.
