Countries: United Kingdom

The Southampton Boat Show, UK, runs from Friday 11th to Sunday 20th September, 2015.

Channel Islands, Cherbourg Peninsular & North Brittany

On Friday 11th to Sunday 13th, between 2pm and 4pm Peter Carnegie the author of the recently published Channel Islands, Cherbourg Peninsular & North Brittany, will be also available to sign your own copy, or just talk about sailing in the area.

This is a favourite cruising ground for cruising sailors, and this recently published pilot is proving popular as it covers such a large area in just one book.

Atlantic Spain & Portugal

On Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th, author Henry Buchanan will be on the stand to sign and talk about his recent edition of the pilot, Atlantic Spain and Portugal.  For local cruisers in this area, or for those planning cruises between more northern European coasts and the Mediterranean, this book will be a “must have” on the bookshelves of such boats.
