First published in 1988 as West Country Cruising, Mark Fishwick's definitive sailing guide for the ever-attractive coastline of Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly combines a skilful blend of pilotage and cruising information, with historical insight and suggestions of where to eat and what to do ashore. For those who plan to head west, this book is more than essential reading - it will enhance your enjoyment and prove to be a worthy and much used addition to the ship's library. Those already in the west will find themselves regularly thumbing its pages. Share Mark Fishwick's passion for this region which combines with his in-depth knowledge from a lifetime cruising these waters to create a text which will inspire and inform you. It is enhanced with colour charts and detailed photography, including spectacular aerial shots of ports, harbours and anchorages, many taken in 2020. This latest, ninth, edition is fully updated for publication and further updates are provided every Spring on the Fernhurst Books' website. More than one satisfied reader has aptly described the book as "the perfect on-board companion".
