This is a very useful almanac covering the all of the countries bordering the Mediterranean as well as the Azores, Madeira and the Canary Islands. It is in a very similar format to the well-known Reed Almanac which covers the European coast from Denmark to Gibraltar.

Formalities for each country, as well as the European Union & Schengen regulations, communications of all types, weather and a large section on navigation lights are all included. Tide data includes the tide table for Gibraltar, tidal stream atlas for Straits of Gibraltar and the tidal differences for various zones around the Med.  Useful route diagrams and distance tables round off this section of the Almanac.

The port information section includes clear, coloured chartlets of many places (but not all), details of access, berthing, facilities and contact data.

If cruising several countries around the Mediterranean, this useful almanac would probably be sufficient and eliminate the need to carry a different one for each country.
