KIRKUS REVIEW

Bill Robinson, of Yachting Magazine, responds to the queries put to him with ""an overall planning guide for Southern yachting trips, for choosing areas of operation and for getting the most out of them while there"". His information covers the tempo of the trade winds, the currency and clothing required, a listing of government or state charts and maps available for Florida, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the Lesser Antilles, Windward and Leeward Islands. For prelude to enjoyment, there are historical and scenic leads as well as indications of what ports offer in the way of anchorage, and personal anecdote where available, particularly in Florida. He notes routes for one and two week trips from Antigua tells how to get boats South through the Intercoastal Waterway, remarks on the Southern Ocean Racing Conference circuit and the Out Island Regatta, a favorite tourist even.
