      I can suggest an alternative source
      of information although, not being a practising ocean-crosser,
      I can't vouch for it in use at sea.
    
      This is "Ocean passages for the world", third edition, 1973. (NP 136)
      Published by the Hydrographer of the Navy , Taunton, UK.
      I think that this was the last edition to include sailing-vessel
    information.
    
      I had to pay �30 for my copy, a couple of years ago.
    
    I second his nomination of this volume.  I have very much enjoyed this work.
    It sells in the US for $110 now, but if you are to go on the seas the
    information is invaluable.
    
    There are a great many pull out maps of the world and its winds and
    currents.
    These maps often pull out to 4 or 5 pages worth of information, all done in
    excellent colors and shading.  It is a book packed with information,
    although
    it is rather slender in size.  Highly recommended.
