East Coast Pilot
With over 20 more pages and up to 50% more photographs, this 3rd, 2011edition really is 'new'. The photographs, both from the air with tracks shown and from boat level together with a clear narrative makes this another 'must have' for anyone sailing on the east coast between Ramsgate and Lowestoft.
Following the Little Ship Club's lead the authors have appointed Honorary Port Pilots willing to advise visiting yachtsmen, with their mobile phone numbers listed they should be kept busy. Full details of pilotage, plus lots of information about shoreside facilities, answers very nearly any question a visitor could ask. Keep it on the boat and a second copy at home for winter planning. The nature of the East Coast means that channels will change and the detail go out-of-date, but a dedicated website carrying the latest changes makes this a 'living' book well worth the investment. The details of the Crouch buoyage changes are already included.
