At 67, Jimmy Cornell remains a whirling dervish. A three-time circumnavigator; the founder of the ARC cruising rally; and the author of literally hundreds of magazine articles and a slew of voyaging bibles, including the invaluable World Cruising Routes, he remains a steadfast sailor who enjoys cruising the waterways of Europe with his wife, Gwenda, aboard their Ovni 43, Aventura. Jimmy is on hand with Cruising World for a series of seminars this month at the Marriott Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland, during the U.S. Sailboat Show. (On Oct. 7th, he'll speak about route planning and on Oct. 6 he'll join the panel discussion "Cruising in Stages." See pages 18-19 of the October 2007 issue or visit the CW booth for times.) The show will also mark the debut of his latest book, A Passion for the Sea: Reflections on Three Circumnavigations. We spoke with Jimmy about the book, and his take on a number of voyaging matters, in anticipation of his Annapolis appearances.
