Published by Imray, Laurie, Norie & Wilson Ltd

If the CCC Sailing Directions are the main course of Scottish cruising under sail, this Companion is both the tantalising G&T and the reflective single malt digestif. The Companion offers the prospect of the secret anchorage and the purple mountain; and, even years later, recalls your travels, white sands, alluring distilleries and ruined castles open on your knees before you.

Solent Cruising Companion.

Author: 

Derek Aslett

ISBN number: 

13 978-0470988282

Pubished by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Most Solent sailors have their favourite off water haunts and this book does a good job of recommending such establishments in popular and out of the way places. I enjoyed reading it and found several of my favourite haunts. The layout is clear and content good generally.

It does suffer from the problem all printed Almanacs and Pilot books have, in that they are out of date as soon as they have been written let alone published. I found one or two places where the establishment has changed hands and names since publication.

The Cruise of Naromis: August in the Baltic 1939

Author: 

G A Jones

ISBN number: 

9781899262335

Published by: Golden Duck UK Ltd. in paperback 

This is far from a straightforward cruise log: part diary, part biography, part naval history. The timing may be unique: having sailed up the German coast and passed through the Kiel Canal, the heroine ends her three-week voyage at Grimsby on Saturday 2nd September 1939, the day before the Second World War began.

Canvas Flying, Seagulls Crying

Author: 

Justin Tyers

ISBN number: 

978-1-4729-0980-0

Published by Bloomsbury,  this book is a good account of a couple whose lives were reborn by taking to the sea after a disastrous fire that destroyed their home.   It gives a tale of sailing the west coast of Scotland, down the Irish Sea and on to Cornwall and Normandy. It is a story of everyday life on a live aboard venture as experienced by two novice sailors. More of a tale of adventures and mishaps than a practical handbook, it is a good read with much about the harbours, islands and characters encountered.

Your First Atlantic Crossing

Author: 

Les Weatheritt

ISBN number: 

978-1-4081-8806-4

Published by : Adlard Coles Nautical

I read this as someone who has never sailed the Atlantic, but has a notion I’d like to. Did I find this useful?

The author has made the trip a few times, in different boats. This is the fourth edition. His first crossing was in a 32 footer plus bowsprit, so he has in mind the everyday sailor.
