This version of the book is 200 pages shorter and does not have Waypoints and GPS coordinates like the newer versions. Don't waste you money on this; buy a newer version.

As a yacht delivery skipper who sails 12,000+ nm per year I depend on Jimmy Cornell's Routes book to help me form the basis of an unfamiliar passage plan. I have recently executed several passages that are listed in the book and was pleased by the result (and the advance local knowledge provided me by this book). The seasonal weather patterns and speed of advance are often the most difficult aspects of planning long passages. This book helps. I just broke down and purchased the latest edition.

I gave only four stars because I disagree with the Jimmy's advice on the Hawaii to California route. I've done nine of these HI-CA passages and have never executed the passage as the book describes...and neither has any other yacht delivery captain that I'm aware of.

Like its predecessors, the 6th edition is loaded with clear maps, excellent data and to-the-point writing valuable to blue water sailors. The 628 pages are broken down into regions, each with an overviewing map and text followed by data and specific information featuring area highlights, harbor notes, pertinent cultural/political notes, prevailing weather guidelines and cautions for each route within that region. The back of the book contains a list of over 100 region-specific cruising guides and an alphabetical index of the book's 1,000 sailing routes. It would take a very long time to ferret out all this information were this book not available. I don't think I've been so excited to have a book since I was a kid. I sleep with this book! Sometimes.

World Cruising Routes allows you to see and chart possible routes to the destinations you may dream about. Gives you the best times of year suitable for sailing to those far off places where blue water meets the white sand of tropical islands. Whether a blue water sailor, coastal cruiser, or bay racer this book can open your imagination to the possibilities of what's over the horizon. Fair winds and calm seal to you.

Mostly text,... well organized,...... as expected. ........... I bought it as a temporary substitute for the latest edition that I couldn't get my hands on.

Unless you're a professional sailor, then this book probably tells you everything you need to know to get you started on planning your cruising routes just about anywhere around the world. Lots of insights and tips to the respective routes. Quite factual and dry, focused on timings, currents, distances and other technical details necessary for route planning. For me it would be great to have someone like Jimmy produce several books, each specific to a region, however, providing at least an overview on the attractions on route. This would have added much value to my ability to actually plan an entire journey, rather than knowing how to get from A to B. Does anyone know of such material for the Meditteranean and the Atlantic crossing from Gibraltar to the Caribbean?

The definitive cruise route book. All major routes in both directions and with seasonal alternates described in terms of weather, seasons, current and wind patterns, storm and hurricane seasons. Routes are described both for world cruising and regional cruises. Landfalls are pinpointed and stitched together into trip-ready routes. Lots of local and region-wide information about weather, wind and current patterns, describing the relationships between these conditions and events. Specific info about maps and charts by name and where to get them. This book is truly whole world, complete for all oceans, all routes. There is enough to keep sailing for a lifetime.
World Cruising Routes is a must read. The format is well thought out and particularly helpful for first time voyagers. One essential aspect of this book is its emphasis on the timing of routes, whether your planned journey is around the world or otherwise. I was most impressed with the manner in which the author presented the basis for his opinions on when to embark on a certain route and why. Extremely helpful and worth every penny. You will find yourself reading and using this book over and over again.
