Cruising Guide to the Cork and Kerry Coast by Graham Swanson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Graham Swanson's cruising companion to this beautiful part of Ireland provides background information that is not found in the traditional pilots and almanacs. His gentle commentary of places and people is a joy to read and conveys the spirit and atmosphere of the remote harbours and anchorages tucked into the rias of Southwest Ireland. The introduction contains an illustrated section on sea birds and each cruising section is lightened by recipes for traditional dishes from the area. The photography illustrates the text and balances the detailed Imray cartography with a sequence of specially commissioned photographs by Patrick Roach.
