Product Description 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: The first significant innovation in pilot charts an essential tool for passage planning since pilot charts were developed by Lieutenant Maury of the US Navy in the mid-1800s. The first and only pilot charts to be based on extensive near real-time geospatial and remote buoy sensing data from 1987 to the present measuring true surface wind and current gathered from a network of OSCAR and other meteorological satellites, using NOAA and Earth and Space Research (ESR) data programs An integral part of Jimmy Cornell s World Cruising Series works hand-in-hand with World Voyage Planner (available September 2012), World Cruising Routes and World Cruising Destinations Review This publication should really be considered an essential item of yacht gear rather than a book. … the data behind this book is all under 20 years old. This is an important factor as climate change means that the days are gone when publishers can get away with basing predictions on 50 year old climatic trends. --Sailing Today Seasoned voyagers know that pilot charts are one of the most valuable tools for passage-making. By employing the latest technology and weather information compiled via satellite over the last two decades and by quadrupling the number of roses on their clearly illustrated collection of transoceanic charts, the Cornells have not only updated a valuable resource but also substantially broadened it --Cruising World This incredible atlas is the best climatological set of information that mariners operating at all levels from professional merchant master mariners to the casual cruisers MUST have alongside Bowditch. Well laid out by the consummate professional that Jimmy Cornell is. Bravo Zulu! --Lee Chesneau About the Author Jimmy Cornell has sailed 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world including three circumnavigations as well as voyages to Antarctica and Alaska. As the founder of the successful ARC transatlantic rally, Jimmy Cornell is credited with having devised the offshore cruising rally concept. Thousands of sailors have fulfilled their dream of blue water sailing with the help of his books, among them the bestseller World Cruising Routes. While working on his next book World Voyage Planner, to be published in 2012, he asked Ivan s help in producing up-to-date pilot charts to illustrate the voyages described in the book. This atlas is the result of their cooperation.
