If you are currently or planning to sail in the Mediterranean then this book will show you the best routes to the islands, how to do it in both the fastest and easiest way plus details of all the ports and marinas you will visit together with their mooring price in high summer!
The Mediterranean is a lovely cruising ground and the islands beckon!
Getting to them from either Gibraltar or Port St Louis if you came down the canals, is the purpose of this book
You can easily get to the Balearic’s in ‘day sails’ but to Sardinia, Sicily, and the Greek Islands, a night at sea is obligatory. If you choose your weather, the warm Mediterranean nights are lovely and in summer the hours of darkness are very short, making it a really good experience.
This book lists the easiest and best routes through the Mediterranean with information on the costs of berths for the night and information about the places to stop at on the way.
