I’ve just received word from Michael Calder of Cromer, NSW, Australia, that the second edition of his 1993 book, A Yachtsman’s Fiji: A Navigator’s Notebook, is now freely available in PDF formal through his personal website.
This professional and extremely well illustrated guide to cruising in Fiji waters is well worth a look if you’ll be sailing that way. The notebook contains 48 helpful charts and lots of valuable local knowledge.
It’s a pity that Michael hasn’t been able to produce a revised print edition of his book but the market for such a publication would be small and I assume he has higher priorities than subsidizing tourism to Fiji. Meanwhile, for those of us who love freebies, here’s a good one.
