This is the book of choice for cruisers heading from Darwin through Indonesia to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. It is also excellent for the more northerly trip via PNG, Palau, and then through Indonesia. Stephen Davies and Elaine Morgan’s detailed text provides cruise planning information, an extensive discussion on climate, technical data concerning radio and weather forecasting services and general background commentary on each country. Each region is then treated in detail and pilotage information is given for key harbours. This pilot is a unique source of information for cruise planning and also will be an essential reference for yachtsmen on passage.
