From Baird Maritime
Anyone who has sailed or even driven along the coast of Brittany and south to the Gironde will be well aware of what a fascinating and enchanting part of the world it is.
The fact is, though, that navigationally and weather wise, the area can be quite tricky. At the southern end, particularly, most of the harbours have bar entrances which can be dangerous in bad weather.
This, pilot, though, makes everything a lot easier. Its photographs and charts along with the brief description of each harbour provide the navigator with the best possible advice as to how to enter and berth or moor there.
Irrespective of whether you are a commercial mariner or a yachtsman, these Imray Laurie pilots are invaluable.
