The perfect guide for anyone who has dreamt of sailing the Caribbean but is unsure how best to go about it. Gibb covers everything one needs to know, offering expert advice on ideal cruising locations, choosing the right boat and equipment, weather forecasts, clothes and supplies, expenses, power needs, health concerns, local legal formalities, and more. After nearly 10 years of continuous cruising with her husband, Gibb writes with the commonsense, down-to-earth practicality born of extensive firsthand experience, which readers will find both helpful and reassuring. John Kretschmer, a contributing editor for Sailing magazine and a successful author in his own right (his Flirting with Mermaids and Used Boat Notebook appear elsewhere in this catalog), provides extra advice and commentary targeted specifically at American sailors planning a Caribbean vacation. Richly illustrated by Gibb's drawings and her husband's photographs, this book has an answer for every question.
