This book is made up of charts of the coastline and harbours, accompanied by brief descriptions. This layout has been used for many years, as it has the advantage of being very easy to read. Moreover, it allows skippers and crews to compare the chosen destination with nearby harbours and anchoring coves and to have a quick glance at the chart when finally approaching the destination. We have given priority to the most relevant sailing details, like the factors influencing the choice of where to moor or anchor on the basis of the specific conditions of the moment. Wind directions are indicated by small arrows and highlight under which wind conditions a harbour or anchorage can become uncomfortable and even dangerous.
