Anglesey and Adjoining Waters Pilot
Ralph Morris’s guide to the island of Anglesey and the North Wales coast was first published over 30 years ago. At that time it covered little more than the island itself. Over the years the pilot has been extended and it now provides information about tides, dangers, harbours and anchorages from Liverpool (marina) to Aberdovey, plus the author’s own chart graphics.
This fully updated tenth edition is spiral bound for easy cockpit use, full colour, chart graphics, aerial views (courtesy of Google Earth) and nearly 100 original photos. It also makes reference to the most noteworthy event in recent years, the wholesale destruction of Holyhead Marina by Storm Emma in March 2018.
Ralph Morris learned his way around Anglesey the hard way – in a day boat with a single chart and a compass which one day chose to fail in fog. That’s not the only thing which prompted the decision to write this pilot, though. The prime mover was the increasing scarcity of Henry Glazebrook’s ‘Anglesey & North Wales Coast Pilot’, which has got him out of many tight corners. The detail and precision of Glazebrook’s “Anglesey & North Wales Coast ” pilot, is legendary and, through this guide, the author hopes to maintain its accessibility to yachties sailing these waters.
