Ocean Sailing

Shortly to be bublished by Adlard Coles

Ocean Sailing is a new departure for the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage Foundation. Author, Paul Heiney, has gathered a group of highly experienced contributors to produce an authoritative guide for anyone contemplating an ocean passage.

Members of three great cruising clubs – the Royal Cruising Club, Ocean Cruising Club, and the Cruising Club of America – share their vast wealth of experience, and by focusing on the practicalities of ocean sailing, allay the anxieties and doubts of prospective ocean cruisers to ensure a deeply satisfying ocean voyage.

Paul Heiney is a well-known writer and broadcaster whose ocean sailing started with a voyage to the Azores which led to his participation in the OSTAR, the singlehanded transatlantic race, in a particularly gruelling year. More recently, he has completed a cruise from the UK to Cape Horn and back – a round trip of 18,000 miles of which he sailed 11,000 miles alone. His account of this trip was published in his much-acclaimed book One Wild Song (Adlard Coles). He is a member of the Ocean Cruising Club and currently Commodore of the Royal Cruising Club.
