This comprehensive guide to the world of chartering, compiled by Rod Heikell, shares the breadth of his knowledge and experience, recommending types of charter, best types of boat, as well as essential information about the world's cruising areas.

Taking a practical approach, he explains everything prospective charterers need to know before setting sail: visas required, healthcare, money, and what to expect from foreign harbours and anchorages. At the heart of the book is a country by country round-up of charter areas around the world with pros and cons, best times to go, wind and sea conditions, harbours and anchorages, eating out, safety, documentation requirements and getting there. Each area is illustrated with a map and colour photos.

This unique guide is a must-have reference for charterers the world over, and a mouth-watering appetiser for those dreaming about where they would like to sail in the future.

Rod Heikell has spent 25 years cruising all around the world. He has sailed his own as well as charter and delivery yachts across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean, across the Pacific and to South East Asia, and his pilots are referred to by the cruising sailors who rely on them as 'the bible'. He is a columnist for Yachting Monthly magazine, and the author of the Adlard Coles Book of Mediterranean Cruising.
