The countries of French Guiana, Suriname andGuyana form a cruising ground that is still well off thebeaten track. Cruising boats visiting these countriesnumber only a few hundred each year, and themajority of cruisers visit just a handful of anchorages.The rest of the region is almost unvisited by touristsor by cruisers. It is generally undeveloped, andprovides an opportunity for cruisers to experiencepristine rainforest with abundant flora and fauna,small towns, and jungle settlements of considerablecultural interest. None of the “cruiser fatigue” all toooften the norm in the Caribbean islands to the northwill be found in these countries.The RCC Pilotage Foundation is very grateful toMartin Dixon-Tyrer for all his hard word and toRos Hogbin who has edited the text and undertakenall of the production to bring it to publication. Weare also grateful to Navionics for allowing use oftheir images.
