Jimmy Cornell, founder of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers and author of the sailor's bible, World Cruising Routes has teamed up with his son Ivan to produce Cornell’s Ocean Atlas, an atlas of 129 up-to-date pilot charts based on the last 20 years of satellite observations.
Cornell’s Ocean Atlas is:
Comprehensive description of weather conditions in every ocean.
Sidebars with tactical suggestions have been added to the months when most passages are undertaken.
Comments and tips on tactics, as well as weather overviews for each ocean, were contributed by meteorologists and routers specializing in those oceanic areas, such as Lee Chesneau, Peter Gibbs (BBC), Herb Hilgenberg, Bob McDavitt (New Zealand Met Office) and John Neal.
From Jimmy Cornell:
“The main objective of Cornell’s Ocean Atlas is to make it possible to take advantage of prevailing winds and seek out whenever possible favourable conditions. Essentially, to try to always be in the right place at the right time, or, better still: Not to be in the wrong place at the wrong time!”
