Cruising Victoria, a guide to cruising Victoria, the Bass Strait islands and Northern Tasmania is a great new publication by the Cruising Yacht Association of Victoria. The guide provides information to assist the cruiser in the planning and execution of a safe and enjoyable cruise along Victoria's 2500 km of coastline.
Victoria's extensive cruising grounds range from long sandy beaches, estuaries, bays, lakes and rivers, to the rugged and sometimes challenging waters of Bass Strait with its dramatic shores, granite islands and forbidding capes. With Cruising Victoria you can now mess about with certainty and foreknowledge.

". . . we have been reading the guide over the last few days – it's such a great resource. Well done in putting it together!"

". . . just so that you know, while sailing in this part of the country, your book is like the bible for sailors. Everyone talks about having used it or hoping to use it. So you must be so proud . . ."

". . . I received the copy just before we left Martha Cove and headed down to Tasmania. We had it with us and subsequently met with some very experienced sailors who have spent decades cruising/working around Victoria and Tassie. Over the next three weeks, I showed them the book. They found it very accurate, thoughtful and truthful. Keep up the good work . . ."
