Samenvatting

The West Country is a brand new cruising guide covering Lyme Bay to Land's End and the Isles of Scilly. It provides essential sailing directions and detailed listings of facilities together with a wealth of information for those wishing to learn about the West Country and enjoy trips ashore. Part of the coastline has World Heritage Status and its geological history is described. Human settlement is traced and the reader is given guidance to find the oldest European fossil of modern man and numerous bronze age remains. Seahorses, dolphins, birds and flowers are discussed as is the history of the cream tea, which comes with a recipe for scones! People of significance, who were born or moved here, such as Sir Francis Drake, William Cookworthy and Agatha Christie, are also included, together with information on the atmospheric railway, the mining and fishing industry and, of course, the Cornish pasty. All the information relevant to a passage, harbour or anchorage is arranged for easy access. Aerial photographs have been taken by Patrick Roach. Ordnance Survey road maps and larger scale town plans help pinpoint facilities ashore. The West Country and Imray charts for the southwest of England provide a comprehensive package for all visitors arriving by boat. Carlos Rojas wrote Imray's Cruising Galicia with Robert Bailey. Along with Imray and through his company Tucabo he has released marine apps for the iPhone and iPad, including Tides, Rules & Signals, Racing Rules, Boat Handling and Chart Navigation using Imray charts.
