Extensively updated with practical first-hand advice, this fifth edition is the perfect guide for anyone cruising the Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean is the dream destination for many chartering a yacht as well as long-distance cruisers. Its myriad delights – the beautiful coastlines, the remote islands, the sleepy villages and exciting cities – draw boaters from all over the world.

Rod Heikell is the undisputed expert on Mediterranean sailing and the Adlard Coles Book of Mediterranean Cruising is the perfect guide for anyone cruising in the area. Thoroughly updated for this fifth edition, the book conveys the magic of Mediterranean cruising, as well as giving practical, first-hand advice on sailing these enticing waters.

Although the Mediterranean provides wonderfully diverse cruising opportunities, it can also deliver a few surprises to the unwary. This invaluable handbook provides sound advice on everything you need to know: anchoring and berthing; what weather to expect; facilities and the costs of keeping a boat there; as well as advice on navigation, popular routes, formalities and what to expect ashore. Each country around the Mediterranean is covered, and there is even a handy section on how to cruise the area on a tight budget.
