The first of the Clyde Cruising Club's Sailing Directions to be published under the Imray imprint.

Whilst the familiar CCC format has been left unchanged, this major new edition incorporates material from Martin Lawrence's Yachtsman's Pilot series. With redrawn plans, new ground level and aerial photographs, and a completely updated text this new edition offers the Clyde yachtsmen the best pilotage that is available.

Firth of Clyde extends beyond its titled area to the coast of Northern Ireland (Rathlin Island to Belfast Lough) and on the Scottish side southwards from Stranraer to Portpatrick and beyond to the Solway Firth and Cumbria.

It is spiral-bound, so lays flat, in full colour and appears waterproof. There are excellent clear plans with traditional symbols and coloured light sectors and importantly many aerial views which together are a great help to a stranger. My only niggle is that the print for all the light details is rather small and wonder if they could be easily read with a dimmed chart light.

The area covered is the whole of the Firth of Clyde together with both sides of the North Channel and the Solway Firth as far south as Whitehaven. Particularly useful are the details for traversing the Crinan Canal and much sound advice for rounding the Mulls of Kintyre and Galloway also crossing the North Channel.

There is an appendix of gaelic for yachtsmen and also extracts from the Clydeport Leisure Navigation Guide which is essential for the Upper Firth. Updates and corrections will be available on the internet.
