New South & West Coasts Sailing Directions from the Irish Cruising Club

#irishcruisingclub – The ICC has just published the 13th edition of its acclaimed Sailing Directions for the South and West Coasts of Ireland. The new book reflects the results of several years' work exploring and surveying the west coast in its entirety, and brings the south coast information up to date as well. The new marinas at Rossaveal, Cork City and in Cork Harbour, and new harbours at Inishmore and Inishmaan, are described, as are 19 anchorages and 13 passages not previously documented. The book is lavishly illustrated, with 156 plans (nine of them new, and the others revised) and 144 aerial and 688 sea level photographs. In his Foreword, Captain Robert McCabe, Director of Operations and Navigation Services at the Irish Lights, says "In 30 years working the coast of Ireland...I have found that the ICC Directions have never failed to deliver practical and accurate assistance. The 2013 offering is truly exceptional."
