From the islands of the Aegean to the Straits of Gibraltar, the allure of the Med is unsurpased. No other cruising ground marries cast troves of shoreside history with unique and easily accessible cuisine, or islands. Although the Mediterranean provides wonderfully diverse cruising opportunities, it can also deliver surprises to the unwary. Rod Heikell, the acknowledged expert on Mediterranean sailing, provides sound advice in this fourth edition, with updates on: anchoring, berthing bow or stern-to, what weather to expect (and how to avoid the worst of it), facilities and the coasts of keeping a boat around the Med, plus information on navigation, popular routes, formalities, and what to expect ashore.
Each country around the Mediterranean is covered, and there's even a handy section on shoe-string cruising for those on a tight budget.
This is the perfect guide for anyone cruising in the Mediterranean, conveying the magic of this unique sea as well as giving practical, first-hand advice on sailing in these enticing waters.
