From Puget Sound to Ketchikan, AK, including the west coast of Vancouver Island and now Haida Gwaii, this popular annual guide provides complete information about marinas, marine parks and fuel docks, U.S./Canada border crossings and Customs, VHF radio requirements, and more. For each cruising area, you'll find a list of charts needed, overviews of the area, and detailed listings of moorage and fuel facilities. There's text on anchorages, Local Knowledge, the "flavor" of each area, some history, and comments on things to see and do. Lots of maps and photos, too. (The Waggoner contains 150 maps and 375 photos.) The Waggoner's maps, showing the coverage of each chapter, the harbors, and individual marinas, are one of its most popular features. They show approach routes and facilities, and take much of the anxiety out of entering a harbor for the first time. Maps of individual marinas detail the entrances and markers, shoal areas, dock layout, and location of the guest moorage and key facilities. More than a catalog of listings and maps, the Waggoner is praised as a "good read." The Waggoner is full of navigation tips, weather lore, anchoring ideas, and local knowledge. Serious sidebar features and descriptions explain tide-rips, reversing tidal rapids, stern-tie lines, shellfish toxins, and more. Lighter pieces and descriptions include the "lost-in-the-'50s" flavor of downtown Olympia; the proper attitude while waiting at the Ballard Locks ("it takes as long as it takes, and that's how it is"); and the discovery of a genuine, fur-bearing trout (very rare) in Prince Rupert. These stories are intended to entertain but also instruct, giving an "insider's look" at hazards, joys, and just plain facts of Northwest boating. The Waggoner includes "Green Pages" - reference pages with conversion tables, Morse code, Beaufort Wind Scale, VHF channels for Washington and B.C. waters. The Waggoner also contains telephone listings for U.S. and Canadian Customs, towing and emergency services.

Most yachtsmen dream about cruising to an exotic destination; this is the book that will turn dreamers into planners. 24 classic cruises are fully mapped, measured and costed, showing how they are perfectly possible whatever your skill level. From weekend cruises around the British Isles to a voyage to Antarctica, and from Greek island cruises to an escape to the Virgin Islands, this book explores where to go, why, how to get there and what to expect en route. The book breaks down each cruise into important considerations, such as what type of boat is needed, what level of skill or qualifications are required, whether it is a suitable journey to undertake with a young family, what possible dangers might influence any decision (from extreme weather to the threat of piracy), and most obviously, cost. Covering popular, exotic cruising destinations such as Thailand and the Virgin Islands, as well as unexpected, almost secret routes along the US Intracoastal Waterway and French canals, as well as proper adventures (including both Atlantic and Pacific crossings), this inspirational may be the starting point for the voyage of a lifetime.
