Southeast Asia cruising guide, second of the two-volume set of the Southeast Asia Cruising Guide to reach a second edition. The only guide that covers the entire length and breadth of a region frequently visited by round-the-world sailors, many of whom leave Australia to head west. In this edition Stephen Morgan and Elaine Davies concentrate on the most frequented routes and includes the most popular stops, hundreds of possible anchorages, the most popular of which are usefully summarised in tables. Introductory sections cover planning and the last part of the book deals with more general topics including advice on provisioning and the problems that are often faced by cruisers.
The part of the world described in this work is one of the most interesting on our planet. Culturally, scenically, climatically and commercially; it has everything, describing it all very enticingly. Set to the usual high standard of the Imray pilots that precede it, this one is spiced up by the wit and anecdotes the authors are so good at.
