There is some overlap between volumes but each presents a logical cruising section of the waters around the British Isles and the coast of Europe. There is a high standard of illustration and production. The target audience is clearly the coastal sailor and the guides provide a comprehensive range of information to supplement the charts and pilots that a yacht skipper should carry aboard. A high standard of accuracy has been achieved and no skipper intending to sail the coast of North Brittany and to explore the Channel Islands can afford to be without a copy. There is an update service to which the reader can subscribe when buying the guide. This service keeps the skipper up to date with all important changes since the work was published. This volume follows the established format for the series by includinggreat deal of information about the features and attractions inland, making it an information guide to exploration away from the ports and marinas. Although the primary target is the yacht skipper the excellent and descriptive coverage of the inland areas makes this a very valuable source of information for anyone interested in the area whether they sail or explore by land.
