At the end of my first circumnavigation I decided to write the kind of book that I wished I had had myself both during the planning of that voyage and the six years that it took us to complete it. Soon after its publication, I realized that while World Cruising Routes could help sailors plan the best route to reach their chosen destination, they would still need some additional information on their actual landfall, as in those days there were few cruising guides, and those that were available only covered popular areas such as the Mediterranean and Caribbean. World Cruising Handbook tried to put that right by including in one volume all maritime nations of the world and providing the reader both with essential planning data and basic practical and background information on each individual nation. The two books complemented each other well and for a while it looked like mission accompKshed. I used both books extensively during my second circumnavigation, but the arrival of the internet and email during that period made me realize that there was now a third dimension that could not be ignored. Thus World Cruising Handbook mutated naturally into www.noonsite.com, which since its launch in 2000 has become the most popular source of information for cruising sailors worldwide. The internet is a wonderful tool for the dissemination of knowledge, and noonsite.com has both benefited from it and contributed to it.
Twenty years after the publication of the Handbook and ten years after the birth ofnoonsite.com, it became apparent that even the internet has its limitations, and World Cruising Destinations attempts to address some of these. While continuing World Cruising Handbook's primary role as a voyage planner by including practical information for each of the 184 countries covered, this book attempts to add a dash of spice to such factual data by describing in more detail every country's main attractions and, hopefully, whets the reader's appetite to sail there. On a practical level, the book attempts to give an idea of what preparations are needed in the way of visas, cruising permits or guides, as well as what is available locally in terms of repair facilities and services, fuel and provisions, or charter opportunities. As there are no individual cruising guides available for at least half of the
countries covered, the following pages contain all the essential information you may need if an unforeseen emergency stop has to be made in a country that is not covered by any other publication.
I am writing these lines while anchored in a small bay on the island of Skyros in the Aegean. Last night Gwenda and I took the dinghy to the nearby harbour of Linaria, a typical Greek port with fishermen mending their nets on the dockside, dazzling-white houses with balconies overflowing with brightly coloured flowers lining the quay, old men chatting over a glass of ouzo, tavernas displaying the catch of the day, and the sleepy place suddenly coming alive with the arrival of the evening ferry. Watching this scene unfold before my eyes, I realized with a pang of joy that in spite of all that has changed in the world since I started cruising, much has remained the same, and that a boat can still take you to places that have remained virtually untouched. Having sailed to over half the countries described in the following pages, and having been fortunate in being able to see so many beautiful places, I hope that this book will inspire many of its readers to cast off the lines and grasp the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful planet of ours.
