Product Description

This guide breaks new ground and offers an alternative route to the Torres Strait. The traditional route via the Bligh Entrance near Papua New Guinea is covered but the author charted a more direct and sail friendly route through the Great Barrier Reef. In his attempt to chart a new route, Ken came across an ancient shipping route that utilizes a pass through the famous reef near Raine Island. This new, old, route shaves over a hundred miles off the trip and offers a downwind and nearly current free passage.

It is not a big book but it is packed with helpful information and knowledge that paves the way to the Indian Ocean. It guide includes 31 chartlets, GPS waypoints, photos, with a focus on the Raine Island Route through the Great Barrier Reef. The Thursday Island Area is a special part of Australia and Ken helps guide the sailor through customs and quarantine procedures unique to the area. Information about provisioning and what other services are available.

The author is an accomplished solo-circumnavigator. He knows what is needed to safely navigate the globe and the Torres Strait.
