    The Pacific Crossing Guide is intended to provide and overview of almost a years cruising between the Panama Canal and New Zealand or Australia. You have to fit the cruise into this time scale in order to avoid the various hurricane seasons in the South Pacific.
    The route outlined is the 'trade winds route' followed by the majority of cruising boats on a circumnavigation, and although there are always off the beaten track islands and countries to visit until you get to the Cook Islands, there are relatively few alternatives.
    The Panama Canal is the Gateway to the Pacific so is covered in detail but probably the official 'dope' sheet is worth skipping until you actually drop the hook in Colon.

    The inspiring life and career of the Miami Marlins’ pitcher, the youngest MLB All-Star in team history, who died in a tragic boating accident in 2016.   In August 2016, José Fernández’s girlfriend, Maria Arias, presented him with a special cake at a family dinner to celebrate that they were going to have a baby. For Fernandez, becoming a father marked a new milestone in a young life that had already been brimming with milestones: fleeing Cuba multiple times before making it to freedom in the United States; drafted by the Miami Marlins in the first round in 2011; making the 2013 and 2016 All-Star teams; winning the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2013, and becoming a US citizen last year. Suddenly, early in the morning of September 25, his life came to a tragic end in a boating crash that left his family, friends, and the baseball world devastated. This book is a Miami Herald tribute to baseball’s unforgettable young pitching sensation and lover of life.

    Arnold Palmer taught world-class pro golf instructor Brad Brewer how to play golf. But that was just the beginning. For more than 30 years, Palmer taught Brad how to live. As a businessman, a father, a celebrity, a philanthropist, and a friend, Palmer showed those around him that true success has nothing to do with the final score—and everything to do with how you play the game. 
    In Arnold Palmer’s Success Lessons, Brad shares the life-changing truths he learned from the King of Golf throughout three decades of knowing Palmer as a business partner, employer, and mentor. In short but powerful chapters, Brad passes on Palmer’s secrets such as: 
    Why you always need to play for the love of the game 
    What your starting point tells you about your destination 
    How to capitalize on past success 
    The attitude of a true champion 
    Why golf is like all the best things in life—it’s more complicated than it looks 
    Taking us from Palmer’s childhood to his last years back in his own hometown, Brad introduces us to the Arnold Palmer behind the trophies, the celebrity, and the fame. This was the man who changed lives simply by living well, a man loved and respected not only for what he did but for who he was.
