West Country cruising companion : a yachtsman's pilot and cruising guide to ports and harbours from Portland Bill to Padstow, including the Isles of Scilly
Part of the Cruising Companions series
First published in 1988 as West Country Cruising, Mark Fishwick's definitive sailing guide for the ever-attractive coastline of Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly combines a skilful blend of pilotage and cruising information, as well as suggestions of where to eat and what to do ashore.
The book is enhanced with colour charts and detailed photography, including spectacular aerial shots of ports, harbours and anchorages.
This latest, ninth, edition is fully updated for publication and further updates are provided every Spring on the Fernhurst Books' website. More than one satisfied reader has aptly described the book as "the perfect on-board companion".
For those who plan to head west, this book is more than essential reading - it will enhance your own enjoyment and prove to be a worthy and much used addition to the ship's library.
Those already in the west will find themselves regularly thumbing its pages.
