High Latitude Sailing is a handy overview of what it takes to sail to the most remote, icy, cruising destinations in the world — Antarctica and the Arctic. While the book is not meant to be a comprehensive cruising/how-to guide, it provides the basics of what is needed and what to expect for the would-be high latitude voyager.

The authors are experienced high latitude sailors and share their practical knowledge of everything from crew preparation to the basics of anchoring, weather and communications — all unique challenges in these remote parts of the world.

As a reference, they provide dozens of links to relevant websites, and provide a thoughtful bibliography for specific skills as well as for inspirational reading.
