Just back for our last trip on Bangoes based in Gocek I found it easy to get drawn into this latest edition. The aerial photographs are very attractive and I am tempted to get it despite owning three previous editions of this pilot. The text, the mini charts, the advice and especially the areal photographs all excellent. An excellent update with lots of carefully amended notes. I read all the section on my favourite cruising ground and found it accurate and very good, it made me want to go back to places I thought I knew and jogged my memory about dangers about which I might have become complacent. The only note of caution is that some advice feels more 2012 not 2013 but that is minor and understandable especially with regard to the protection areas and Blue Card. LSC members would do well to sit in the library some winter evening and spend a few hours reading this delightful new edition planning their next cruise in Turkish waters.
