The Western Australia Cruising Guide
Now in its fourth edition (December 2014), the Western Australia Cruising Guide is regarded as the coastal cruising bible for WA, covering the coast from Darwin to Eucla, including the Christmas and Cocos Islands. It includes many anchorages, routes, both in charted and uncharted waters, showing suitable spots to anchor, dangers, tidal information, places of interest and history of the area. An introductory section covers general pilotage information, weather, tides, passage planning, radio stations, dangerous marine animals and a brief history of exploration. This book is a definite “must have”, especially for cruising the Kimberley.
It is available from Boat Books Australia (and for Fremantle Sailing Club members, purchase at Reception counter) Spiral bound, 316 pages. Members $75.00, non-members $79.95.
