Personally reconnoitered by Jack and Jude during our many circumnavigations of Tasmania

We’ve been sailing since we were kids and have safely explored untold scary places. So, if you follow our lead, you too can have the experience of a lifetime with the caveat that you are in command, sailing seas that can be life-threatening.

Immediately after payment is completed, a link will be emailed to download your file. Also, an email will be sent to your PayPal email account with payment confirmation and a duplicate link. These links expire after 120 hours and allow 5 attempts to download. Ensure you have a good internet connection. The files are large. Breaks in connection may terminate download. Read these notes and if there’s a problem, contact us.

KINDLEs: The secret to uploading any file to a kindle is to know where the file is on your computer, and then plug in the kindle using the USB cable. It will then be recognized as just another device like a thumb drive or camera. Using your file manager (Explore in windows) copy and then paste the file into the “documents” folder listed under your kindle. Once you see your file in that”documents” folder, when you turn on the kindle it will show up with all your other books.

Therefore the secret is to download our Cruising Guide to a location that you can find, like “My Documents” or Win 7 uses “downloads_net” which is a folder under “My Documents.

iPhones and iPods  are a bit easier, especially if you download our file straight to the device. On some devices, Google Play have tightened their grip, making it harder to access downloaded files. On our Android, we use a free app “Cool Reader” that reads multiple formats and will browse to any file on our device. A good reader  for ipads/ipods is here.

As you can imagine, this project has taken a bit of dedication and hundreds of hours, so all we ask is that you respect our copyright and do not replicate or distribute our files. Instead send your mates here to buy us a wine. Cheers.

  1. Do you know how I can get a copy of the Gordon River Map and Detailed Document Text Guide from Trevor Norton? I can’t find his contact details online

  2. Hello Jack ‘n Jude,

    Does the Tasmanian Cruising Guide cover the crossing (from Eden South) itself? Or is another one of your guides better for this? Regards, and thanks!

  3. Hi Jack & Jude, I purchased your Tassie Guide 15/10/16 but didn’t download as the link came through on my phone but I want it on my iPad. Is there some way of downloading through your website with a password?

    • The download process is handled by E-Junkie, and is not connected to our website. I have orgainized the renewal of the download link and the email notification to you. Activate this link on the device you want the guide to be on, OR download the file to a laptop or PC then install the file on your ipad wherever you put ebooks. Hope that helps. Please remember, these links expire in 48 hours. Cheers,

  4. Thanks very much for your good work with the Tasmania cruising guide. I recently got back from a solo clockwise trip of bass strait, staying at many of the anchorages that you have. Beautiful spots indeed!
    Regards, Joel

    Thanks Joel, glad to hear you found our Tasmanian guide so helpful. It’s a wonderful area to cruise, and so much more enjoyable/safer when you know where to go.

  5. Hi, We had recently bought your info about Tassie, and having finished that part of our trip, would like to say how useful it was. Tassie was a great experience, especially the SW corner and the W coast – the crayfish were great.
    Once again, Thank you for the information,
    Regards, Do & Di McDougall

    Really pleased our cruising guide opened up that wonderful part of Australia for you. We love the west coast too. Always so much to do and explore.

  6. Hi,
    Is the Tasmanian Cruising Guide available as a hard copy book. If so how much ?
    Many thanks,
    Allan Partridge

    Hello Allan,
    The PDF format of our cruising guides can be printed on A4 paper and then put in a binder of your own choice. But we do not produce a cruising guide in print.

  7. Hi,
    have enjoyed many of your destination stories. My husband Mick and I are relatively new to the sailing world, have much to learn and to discover. We purchased our own boat a 35′ Holland Pilot house cruiser back in 2011 and we moor her at Kettering in Tassie. Have spent the last 12 months just getting to know the boat and our own capabilities within the Derwent & Channel areas. So far so good,maybe some day we will venture further afield to some of our beautiful spots here and around Australia.
    Thanks for sharing your exceptional life and journeys on the water with us.
    looking forward to receiving your newsletters.


  8. Hi
    Planning to sail from Darwin to Cairns. Have done it 2-3 times but would be interested to know more little spots to discover and enjoy.
    Do you have anything on this in electronic format I could buy
    Many thanks

    • Hi Gil, There are a few spots listed by Ocelot that sound grand, found in Anchorages pull down menu, we really like the top end from Flinders with the Art Gallery on Stanley, then Adolphus is grand, so much depends on the weather. Safe sailing, Jack and Jude

  9. Hi Jack ‘n Jude, have been following your blog and of course bought Two’s A Crew. Just downloaded the Tasmanian Cruising Guide and it looks great! I am sailing there this coming summer from WA so it will be a great resource when I arrive.
    Keep up the good work!

  10. Everything has worked perfectly. I downloaded the PDF file onto my laptop and iPad. The document looks great. I have not yet checked out the imbedded linkages but at first glance it is a fantastic product – a real credit to you both. I have no intentions of cruising down to Tassie in the near future but wanted to support your efforts. I have hard copies of your 3 books and enjoyed those greatly so am a dedicated fan. Very best wishes to you both,
    Tony and Cath
