Harbours & Anchorages of Scilly – 2nd Edition


“Getting a handle on the best anchorages of the Isles of Scilly is vital if you want to fully enjoy and safely navigate these beautiful islands, making this cruising guide an excellent and invaluable companion for anyone planning a trip”

Sam Jefferson
Editor, Sailing Today Magazine

An intimate overview of some twenty five anchorages throughout the islands, not found in the usual pilot books. This second edition, now over 100 pages, incorporates additional anchorages, references, advice and drone photography by Tim Good. The original author has an unrivaled knowledge of the islands (Scilly local boatmen excepted, of course!) gained over some sixty years of sailing to the islands in a variety of yachts from shallow draft multi-hulls to his beloved El Animado, which had a draft of over two metres. Apart from clear and simple pilotage notes for a number of deep and drying anchorages, this book has advice on anchoring techniques, weather, history and topography. Surely a ‘must read’ for anyone visiting the wonderful Isles of Scilly.
