It is written by the editor of The Yachtsman and is illustrated with over sixty charts and photographs of the main harbours and headlands between the South Foreland and Land's End. No cruising yachtsman should be without this book. Its usefuless may be judged from the reasons which prompted the writing of the book. Here areb the author's own words, "Some years ago a friend of mine invited me to join him on a cruise down west. .. . It was then that it occurred to me how useful would be a book illustrating the photographs of the coast and headlands and harbors — something beyondthe written word to help the navigator to recognise where he is. This book is the result." All the charts and dawings are the work of T. L. Stocken, an enthusiastic yachtsman and a skilful draughtsman with the ability to simplify without omitting essential details." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Dover to Poole. 2. Poole to Land's End.
