Book Description

Jun 1997
Since its publication in 1985, Rod Heikell's Turkish Waters & Cyprus Pilot has been the only comprehensive pilot for the coasts of Turkey available in English. This sixth edition is a major revision. During 2000 Rod Heikell spent some three months sailing and exploring the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts in seven tenths collecting the latest information, drawing new harbour plans and taking new photographs. The technical information at the beginning of the book has been recompiled and redesigned and new waypoint lists have been added to meet the needs of modern navigation. This data has now been assembled and incorporated in this new full colour edition. Turkish Waters & Cyprus Pilot covers the coasts and islands from Istanbul, through the Sea of Marmara, the Dardanelles, the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts to the Syrian border. Despite tourist development during recent years, Turkey remains largely undiscovered. Its background, combining fine coastal scenery, a classical history and a culture that blends East and West, makes it a most attractive and peaceful cruising ground. This pilot also covers the island of Cyprus, the small Greek outpost of Kastellorizon and the Black Sea coast of Turkey for which the notes provided by the author will be of interest to those yachtsmen going northwards.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars East Aegean; the Greek Dodecanese Islands 2 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rod Heikell's series of books, including this book are a must for anyone planning a sailing holiday. This book provides great insight into how to plan your trip, where to stop, unique sailing tips on mooring, winds and facilities from a fellow sailor. I first open these books a few weeks before we leave and have it open during our whole trip. I would almost feel like I am travelling without a passport if I were to go on a sailing trip without his guide.
