Posted on June 26, 2010 at 12:30pm 4 Comments

After growing up in the Western Med and taking the time to cruise the area extensively, I realized I always end up recommending the same favorite waypoints to fellow cruisers. Most of them are not even on guides but were recommended to us by others. Others we simply stumbled upon. Now I am sharing my list with you below (click on the coordinates for a map view).

Is the iPad the future of marine electronics?

Is the iPad the future of marine electronics? Well, now I'm convinced it is.

you are more interested in the passages than in the movie. how is that for simplifying it?? isnt a problem--some movies arent worthy of our time after such trivialities as ocean passages....

Great! I hope he enjoys the book. He should be able to use the index to look up English words, phrases! Tell him to let me know how it works for him.

By the way, Imray is now carrying the new edition, so it should be easier to get in Europe.
