Book of the month – South China Sea
January's Book of the Month
26th January 2023, By Imray
South China Sea author Jo Winter was just passing through in 2007 but ended up staying for more than a decade in what she describes as one of the most diverse, beautiful, unspoilt and undiscovered cruising areas in the world. She extols the joys of abundant new discovery in exploring all the different countries and coastlines - especially beyond the already popular sailing hubs of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.
In particular, the extensive Philippines archipelago offers an endless choice of stunning coral anchorages, with a good scattering of welcoming marinas where cruisers and racing boats congregate. This is a quintessential island paradise! If you are looking to charter, you may want to start in the Gulf of Thailand where there are well established charter fleets offering easy turquoise water cruising from ‘Ko’ to ‘Ko’.
