A Passion for the Sea

by Art on

An excellently done book that makes you want to get in your yacht and take off to explore the places Jimmy has been too. We should all be so lucky as to be able to do a small part of this book in our lifetime. The photography is excellent as well.


Written by Jimmy Cornell

A Passion for the Sea One of the most influential cruising yachtsmen writing today, Jimmy Cornell has sailed over 200,000 miles in more than thirty years on the oceans, including three circumnavigations and voyages to the Arctic and Antarctic. His successful guide to sailing around the world, World Cruising Routes, has helped many aspirational voyagers turn their dreams into reality and follow in his footsteps.

In this new book, Jimmy tells the story of his own travels in great detail. Decades of offshore sailing experience are distilled into this colorful account, which is packed with valuable observations, spiced up with entertaining anecdotes, and illustrated with brilliant photos from along the way.

Much more than just an exciting report of his adventures, Jimmy draws on his experiences to share practical tips for those inspired to follow his example, along with important technical information.
