"We first sailed this coast in 1984 as participants in the St. Petersburg to Isla Mujeres Race. The inspiration for this guidebook came shortly after discovering that the entire coast desperately lacked good harbor charts to show cruising yachtsmen where to go and how to get there safely. We have logged over 8,000 nautical miles exploring this coast, personally investigating every pass, channel and anchorage suggested in this book."
