«“This book contains all that a good pilot should, excellent maps and harbour plans, good pilotage information, tidal charts, buoyage, weather reporting and so forth, but it is the style of the book that sets it apart. Reading it feels like having a conversation with an old friend during which he reminisces about places he has been or sailed to.” (Royal Cruising Club) “A sailing book that epitomises the best qualities of a cruising companion. It’s thorough, well-informed, full of good suggestions and possesses the invaluable quality of intensifying enjoyment without bossily directing it… It’s an absolutely desirable purchase and memorial to a cruising lifetime well spent.” (Yachting Monthly) “This cruising companion has re-invigorated my appetite to explore in more detail and at a leisurely pace the offerings of this unique cruising ground.” (Moody Owners’ Association) “A must-have for yachtsmen cruising these waters.” (Julian Stockwin) “A book that one could read for pleasure as well as information. The text is enhanced by the excellent quality of the photographs and there is a good balance between navigational information, domestic needs for longer-term cruising and tourist information.” (Cruising Association) “An essential in the Channel Island boat-owner’s library. Peter’s enthusiasm for the sailing area pours out of every page – he does not just tell you about a port but gives you a feel for it.” (Channel Islands Guide)»
