This is the first of the two-volume set of the Southeast Asia Cruising Guide to reach a second edition. It is the only guide that covers the entire length and breadth of a region frequently visited by round-the-world sailors, many of whom leave Australia to head west. This edition concentrates on the most frequented routes and includes the most popular stops. There are hundreds of possible anchorages, brief details of the most popular are usefully summarised in tables. Introductory sections cover planning and the last part of the book deals with more general topics including advice on provisioning and on problems that are often faced by cruisers. STEPHEN DAVIES & ELAINE MORGAN first arrived in the region over 30 years ago. They work in Hong Kong, Stephen Davies as Director of the Hong Kng Maritime Museum an Elaine Morgan as a writer and editor. Contents: Preface; Acknowledgements; Planning guide; Cruising guide; Indonesia; East Timor; Singapore; West Peninsular Malaysia; West Thailand; Papua New Guinea; Palau; Preparations, provisions & provisos.
