By Judy Lomax
RCC Pilotage Foundation Norway is a cruising guide to the mainland coast, fjords and islands of Norway, including Svalbard and Jan Mayen. The relatively benign sailing in the south, with its superb scenery and friendly people, make this a rewarding cruising area for crews who are equipped and prepared to be self-contained. The far north is not for the faint hearted, but RCCPF Norway includes the necessary pilotage information to guide your more challenging passage-making as you sail north above the Arctic Circle. Judy Lomax has drawn on her many years' experience of cruising Norwegian waters and has used detailed cruising notes compiled and donated by other cruising yachtsmen. RCCPF Norway includes a comprehensive introduction to the country and sound advice about preparation. Colour plans and some stunning photographs highlight areas of interest and help with passage planning. Navigation is made easier with the clear and concise details of routes and anchorages, from the Swedish border and Oslo in the south, all the way round to the Russian border and up into the high Arctic. Interesting local facts, history and myths are interwoven with passage details to make the RCCPF Norway pilot book the essential companion for any cruising sailors heading for Norwegian waters.
This third edition contains numerous revisions, additional plans and information on anchorages not included in the previous edition.
"Any yachtsman even contemplating a visit to this loveliest of cruising areas could be considered negligent if he did not buy this book". - RHR, Cruising
One reader commented: "...The author finds it difficult to avoid superlatives when talking about Norwegian scenery. I find it equally difficult to avoid superlatives when talking about this book. I am impressed. Also most Norwegians may learn a lot of facts from this excellent book. This will remain a classic, and will come in new editions in the foreseeable future..."
“For anyone sailing in Norwegian waters this book is an absolute must. It is the perfect example of a truly excellent pilot from which practically nothing can be found missing.” Christine Holroyd, Cruising Association magazine.
