Description Coverage Areas Extended Information
Street’s Guide to the Cape Verde Islands is the first
and only cruising guide for the Cape Verde Islands. Printed in 2011 it is a
completely up-to-date, full-color guide that includes charts and sketches not
available through any other source, as well as GPS waypoints, harbor and marina
information, local knowledge and much more. Don Street has a message for all
sailors planning to cross the Atlantic via the trade-wind route :“Forget about
spending Christmas in the Caribbean, which forces you to cross the Atlantic in
late November and early December when the trades are erratic and sometimes
light to nonexistent. Instead, spend Christmas cruising and exploring the Cape
Verde Islands and set off in late December or early January, after the trades
have settled in, and be almost guaranteed a fast passage. They’re not called
the Christmas Winds for nothing! ”To back up this advice, Don has written
Street’s Guide to the Cape Verde Islands. In it, he provides a historical and cultural commentary to
add color to his down-to-earth descriptions of more than 50 potential
anchorages (potential, because while a few are well known, a great many of them
are rarely visited by any other than local boats). Any sailor with a sense of
adventure who reads this guide will find plenty of reasons to go exploring in
the Cape Verdes — enough, perhaps, to occupy the entire month of December.
