Caribbean Cruising: Your Guide to the Perfect Sailing Holiday

Jane Gibb, Author, John Kretschmer, Author Sheridan House $23.95 (176p) ISBN 978-1-57409-172-4
The Caribbean offers some of the friendliest sailing waters in the Northern Hemisphere; in this book's introduction, John Kretschmer says it's""arguably the world's finest cruising ground."" Experienced sailors Jane and John Gibb cover many aspects of sailing in the region, from getting there to using a GPS navigation system to safely storing medication on board. Sidebars on water consumption (explaining how to calculate necessary quantities) and things to consider when buying a boat (such as""how will sleeping arrangements work out?"") address key issues, and, coupled with the comprehensive narrative, seem to anticipate a good number of the questions sailors who are new to the Caribbean might have. The authors' playful language--many cruisers' route plans, they say, are""set in Jell-O""--should put anxious readers at ease. That said, the Gibbs cover important aspects, such as steering with autopilot and windvanes, with appropriate seriousness. Photos, line drawings, maps.
