Cuba is a unique island at a turning point in its history. It is almost the last major destination in the Caribbean unexplored by the cruising community. For thirty-five years this island on the doorstep of America has been off-limits - a tantalizing Shangri-La hidden behind an iron curtain of gunboats and coastal defenses. In recent years, the iron curtain has been lifted; tourists, including sailors, are welcome. The one remaining bar to cruising the island has been the lack of a good, widelyavailable, cruising guide. But not anymore.
Cuba: A Cruising Guide dispels the navigational fog that has long surrounded the island. In researching this guide Nigel Calder left no stone unturned. His meticulous attention to detail, which has made his other books international best sellers, shows in every page. The information in this book is condensed from over $3,000 in Cuban, American and British charts, supplemented with archival materials from the British Admiralty and the DMA, and checked, tested and corrected with the latest in satellite-based chartmaking technology.
This 1999 revised edition contains a large number of revisions, an updated introductory section and includes the addition of a section of colour plates.There are almost 200 sketch charts, showing details of well over 200 anchorages, with entry waypoints for each and everyone. The charts are supplemented by excellent horizon sketches drawn by Nigel's artist wife, Teresa Frisbie-Calder.
There has never been a cruising guide with sketch charts of this caliber , or with this amount of detail. This guide sets a new standard. For anyone contemplating or planning a cruise in Cuban waters, it is an absolutely indispensable resource. With this book, the navigational mysteries surrounding Cuba are dispersed once and for all, and the island is finally opened up to full enjoyment by cruising sailors worldwide.
