This book is a detailed guide to sailing around the Channel Islands, with authentic anecdotes, historical details, information on tidal streams, and much more. With a wealth of useful information for the sailor, this volume is highly recommended for anyone wishing to traverse the Channel Islands by boat, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “General Remarks on the Appearance of the Island of Guernsey and Jersey, as seen from the Westward; Reflection”, “Prevailing Winds among the Channel Islands; Surroundings”, “Tidal Stream in the Offing; Caution”, “Guernsey Island; St. Peter Port; Supplies”, “Herm and Jethon Islands”, “The Amfroques and other Rocks off Them”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing “The Channel Islands Pilot” now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on building boats. This book was first published in 1844.
