This 15th edition (2018-2019) is split into two guides, The Cruising Guide to the Northern Leeward Islands and The Cruising Guide to the Southern Leeward Islands. This book picks up where The Cruising Guide to the Northern Leeward Islands ends, and covers the islands of Antigua, Barbuda, Guadeloupe, Marie Galante, the Saintes, and Dominica. If you are sailing south, there is a section covering passages into the Windward Islands (Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenada), which are covered in The Sailors Guide to the Windward Islands.
These guides are an essential tool for all cruisers sailing this region. Chris Doyle spends months sailing these islands to update each edition. Included are over one hundred up-to-date color sketch charts, full color aerial photos of most anchorages, island pictures, and detailed shoreside information covering services, restaurants, provisioning, travel basics and island history.

Chris Doyle's cruising guides are among the most popular in the Eastern Caribbean. Chris attributes this to listening to his customers when they tell him what they would like to see in a guide, and following their ideas when it makes sense. In this way his guides have always been highly innovative, leading the way in color sketch charts, then computerized color sketch charts, GPS waypoints, star charts and a guide-linked website where people can find corrections, download town maps, download GPS waypoints, access navigational advisories, and get links to down island businesses.
