228 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), hard cover (glazed pictorial boards) - no dust jacket. ISBN 0877429545 B&w photographs, maps, drawings, diagrams. "The bulk of the world's cruising fleet emanates from non-coral areas and carries out most of its crui sing within coral waters. There is therefore a positive need to understand the realities: the seasons of trade winds; the behaviour of destructive winds; the special foods to be found in the tropics; the dangers of coral waters and the spe c i a l p r o b lems of navigating and anchoring there. Cruising in coral is different. Not terrifyingly so, as some sailing authors might have you believe, but different enough to warrant a general overhaul of nautical attitudes and practices as w el l as ga in in g general knowledge pertinent to that environment."
