I first must declare an interest: I was one of the proof-readers for this book; however, what follows is in no way swayed by this fact.

Having previously sailed only through the Mediterranean, this pilot book was my first encounter with the works of the renowned Anne Hammick. As a proof-reader one has to try to stay at a distance from the work, but in this case it was a difficult task as the text was so absorbing!

Hugely informative, packed with useful information such as local history, contact channels, telephone numbers, email addresses, way-points etc. Apart from the text, the book has a substantial number of harbour charts, as well as photographs which are not only interesting but very informative.

There is so much information in this excellent book that I am less concerned about the difficulty of obtaining large-scale printed charts of the area; I am considering doing without them for a season as a trial.

In summary, a truly excellent buy, and a "must have" for anyone contemplating cruising these beautiful islands.

This pilot, compiled to the highest standards by an outstanding yachtswoman and author, and continuously updated by fellow experienced yachtsmen and women, is essential reading for anyone contemplating visiting any of the Atlantic Islands, and a must-have on board.

I found essential information on local contacts, harbours, anchoring. The book also contains useful charts & pictures for orientation. Easy reading.

Excellent book. Full of the kind of information you need to make decisions about where to go, which marinas to use etc.Will be a valuable asset when we visit Maderia and the Canaries later this year. Excellent service from Amazon as always

I'll see in some weeks whether it's consistent with reality, but for preparation purposes it's excellent. Use of another guide book (e.g. lonely planet) for on shore activities is however recommended.

It is a pity that on the amazon site the edition year is not always easy to spot if not in many cases non-existent.
