Book Description

Jun 1991
This detailed guide is a compendium of information that covers the Danube from Bavaria to the Black Sea. The Danube is illustrated with plans and photographs. Although published in 1990 this remains an excellent guide to the waterway. Rod Heikell is well known in sailing circles as the author of many books covering the Mediterranean. His books are based on first-hand research and provide an acclaimed blend of clearly presented technical data as well as historical and background information.

More About the Author

Rod Heikell was born in New Zealand in 1949 and sailed hesitantly around bits of it's coast in a variety of yachts. He tried racing in the Hauraki Gulf but was really not much good at it. In England he abandoned academic life and for no good reason other than curiosity, he bought Roulette, a 1950's plywood JOG yacht nearly 20ft long, and sailed it down to the Mediterranean. He worked on charter here and delivered yachts until, in ignorance of the scale of the task, he set off to write a yachtsman's guide to Greece. This was followed by guides for other countries in the Mediterranean. He has sailed back and forth between England and the Mediterranean including a trip down the Danube and on to Turkey in Rosinante, an 18ft Mirror Offshore. In 1996 he took his fourth yacht, his beloved Tetra, to SE Asia and back for the research for Indian Ocean Cruising Guide. Apart from sailing the 'wrong' way and back again the 'right' way across the Indian Ocean in Tetranora, his beloved 31ft Cheverton New Campaigner, he has done two transatlantics in seven tenths and two transatlantics on Skylax, his present yacht. He has also cruised extensively in other parts of the world on other yachts. Skylax is now back in the Mediterranean after her circumnavigation being readied for new adventures. He always returns to the Mediterranean, his favourite cruising grounds, where with his wife Lu he updates his guides on the area.

His latest books are The Trade Wind Foodie and The Accidental Sailor.

Some of these books have been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Turkish.

Also edits the Imray-Tetra chart series for the eastern Mediterranean.

Articles have appeared in Yachting World, Yachting Monthly, Practical Boat Owner, Sailing Today, Yacht, Sail, and other magazines.

2.0 out of 5 stars Danube river guide 2 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
After using Rod Heikell's excellent pilot books, this Danube guide is a big disappointment. It is not the fault of the writer, but the time. It has been almost 20 years since it was written, what is very much for a book purchased by readers who are planning trip on this great river. Very few practical advices, most of them useless. Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria is in the EU, Yugoslavia is not on the map any more, it can not be up to date. If you look for a practical guide for a Danube trip do not waste money for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Danube River Cruising 26 July 2010
By Defoe.
Format:Hardcover
A great read, especially relevant whilst travelling up the Danube from Budapest to the Rhine-Main-Danube link.
This required reading the sections in reverse, which was tiresome, as the author made his epic journey [before the Iron Curtain came down] going downstream. Nevertheless a most enjoyable and informative account.

On the Danube River cruise - last year, lots of other passengers wished that they had purchased this book. I still refer to while sorting out many photographs. Excellent value.

Ok for historical data. I hadn't noticed how long ago this was written. Although some useful info I wonder how relevant parts of it are now.
