'A book for dreamers, novice sailors & tested navigators': SSCA reviews '200,000 Miles'

There has been a very good review of “200,000 Miles, A Life of Adventure” in the January 2018 edition of the Seven Seas Cruising Association Bulletin.

SSCA Lifetime Commodore Jimmy Cornell’s latest book is based on his extensive knowledge of offshore cruising gained from an experience that stretches over four decades.

Approximately two thirds of the book deals with practical matters and covers all subjects of interest to anyone planning to leave on an offshore voyage. The other third of the book describes highlights from the author’s circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica, a transpacific passage from Antarctica to Alaska, or the challenges of the Northwest Passage. The chapters alternate between the two, with one technical chapter being followed by a cruising narrative.

While primarily aimed at sailors who are planning or making preparations for a longer voyage, this book will also appeal to tested ocean navigators as well as weekend sailors. The book’s attractive style, with 500 excellent photographs from the author’s vast collection, should be equally appealing to dreamers.
