Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California including the Channel Islands
by Charles and Margo Wood
This guide describes the choices of routes that a coastal cruiser may follow: offshore, inshore or harbor-hopping route from Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California. A safe approach to all major facilities is described and sketched in detail as well as the anchorages in the Channel Islands.
Many cruisers have found the detailed information invaluable when approaching both planned stop-overs or when making an unexpected approach to the coast as a result of engine or equipment failure or a health emergency. Detailed drawings of marina facilities takes the worry out of approaching an unfamiliar marina especially if the crew is fatigued following a tiring spell at sea.
A GPS Waypoint list is a feature of this updated and revised edition. It is intended to assist a cruiser to locate offshore approach buoys and avoid reefs, points and capes by a safe margin. Waypoints are not given following the channel into marinas because facilities, river channels and other areas subject to shoaling are constantly changing. Spiralbound. 8 1/2" x 11". 217 pgs. 2007 Pub.
