   Since this book was first published in 1987 I have received many positive comments and also some very valuable suggestions from sailors using it. Although in recent years I have not been able to sail as much as I would have liked, mainly because of my involvement with the various sailing events which I organise, it is this very involvement with all those hundreds of active sailors which has provided a rich and constant source of information on new cruising areas, unusual weather conditions, or less frequented sailing routes. I have also benefitted from the first hand experience gained during the first EUROPA Round the World Rally, some of which I sailed in my own La Aventura. All this information, gained both directly and indirectly, has been incorporated in this revised and expanded edition. By far the most important change that has occurred since this book was first published is the almost total dependence on satellite navigation in offshore sailing. Therefore all routes have been thoroughly revised in light of the ascendancy of satellite navigation. To simplify the planning of individual routes essential waypoints are listed. Several new routes have also been added as boats venture further afield and new cruising grounds are being discovered. Landfall information, as well as main ports of entry are also included to assist the planning of each passage from the beginning to its successful end. In many places routes have been regrouped by bringing together all routes originating from the same country or group of islands. For the sake of clarity, every such group has its own sketch map, so all sketch maps have been redrawn and now show not just the route itself but also the main distances.
