East Coast Pilot : Great Yarmouth to Ramsgate
By Colin Jarman, Garth Cooper ans Dick Holness
England’s East Coast, from Norfolk to Kent, is loved for its creeks and harbours, while its shallows and sand banks make for some interesting pilotage. The authors are well-known commentators on the East Coast boating scene and wrote this new-style guide bringing a fresh approach to pilot books, covering the coast from Lowestoft in the north to Ramsgate in the south.
Since its launch East Coast Pilot has become the most popular pilot book for the creeks, harbours and rivers between Lowestoft and Ramsgate, providing clear and concise sailing directions for visitors and regular East Coast cruising yachtsmen alike. This edition is 20 pages longer and contains even more photographs and additional information.The three authors all keep their boats on the East Coast and sail these waters regularly, using their time afloat to update their knowledge and experience so that they can pass on exactly the kind of information required by anyone cruising there. For clarity and ease of reference, the pilotage information is arranged in sequence on double page spreads to give the navigator all that is required to take his craft into a river or harbour. The information is backed up by Imray's clear cartography, the authors' sea level photographs of exactly what the navigator will see, Patrick Roach's aerial photographs for an overview of the main areas and 'rolling road' diagrams.These unique illustrations, introduced to great acclaim in the first edition, show buoyage sequences and tracks to steer for the more difficult sections of rivers and harbour entrances. Easy to see panels give key waypoints, port and harbour contact details plus information about the main facilities a cruising crew may need.Updates are published on the dedicated website www.eastcoastpilot.com Setting a new standard for clarity and attractive format ...this new pilot can be highly recommended to all East Coast yachtsmen' The Cruising Association
