Atlantic Islands
By Anne Hammick & Hilary Keatinge
Published by Imray Laurie Norie & Wilson/ RCC Pilotage Foundation
(Fully Revised 6th edition March 2016)
ISBN-978 184623 6495

This well-established pilot, now in its third decade, covers the Azores, Canaries, Madeira and Cape Verde Islands. The sixth edition of Atlantic Islands builds on solid foundations - the author's long familiarity with the area, an invaluable network of local contacts, and the constant flow of information and feedback received from yachtsmen and women during the lifetime of the previous editions.

For this edition the coverage has been extended to include Bermuda. This new section is an important development especially for US-based yachts and for the east-bound Atlantic crossing.

It opens with a chapter on essential route planning considerations; wind, currents and a variety of sources of weather information. All important factors when planning a long ocean voyage. Each country is then covered in detail and is supported by new photos as well as new and revised harbour plans and the fully updated text.

Whether you seek authoritative pilotage information, comprehensive details of available facilities, or simply suggestions for planning an enjoyable cruise, you will find them all in this new edition of Atlantic Islands.

A December 2016 supplement can now be downloaded.
