West Country Cruising Companion

    By

    Cruise the West Country and discover its delights with this perfect onboard companion. 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, enhanced with full colour photography, including many additional aerial views, and a wealth of absorbing local history and general interest. More than one satisfied reader has aptly described the book as "the perfect on-board companion", now reflected in this enlarged eighth edition. For those who plan to head west, this book is more than essential reading - it will enhance your own enjoyment and prove to be a worthy and much used addition to the ship's library.
