A Territorial Guide to the Irish Sea: Wales North Wales South England Ireland North Ireland South and Isle of Man

TheIrish Sea is a vast almost landlocked sea. Around its shores and islands are no fewer than six countries provinces or protectorates.
Multiple languages are represented - English Welsh Irish Scottish Gaelic and Manx as well as myriad accents and dialects. Its waters are teeming with life - dolphins and porpoises are a common sight - leatherback turtles come here from the Caribbean to feed on the jellyfish and whales are regular visitors. In the air are gulls puffins loons and more. The range of challenges and coastlines is amazing. Tides over five knots are commonplace yet there are calm sheltered waters for relaxed walking.

This cruising guide covers both sides of the Irish Sea from Milford Haven to Portpatrick and Rathlin Island to Carnsore Point. From his base in Liverpool David Rainsbury spent much of 2014 visiting the coasts he described. The sailing instructions and descriptions updated for this second edition cover all locations such as harbours anchorages . At the beginning of each chapter there is useful approach and departure information dealing with some of the more difficult passages and tide gates. The harbour descriptions are clearly structured so that essential information on accessibility tides and accommodation can be found quickly and are supported by full-colour maps.

For this second edition the harbour maps have been updated and new photographs added. The text records all changes and includes a new section on wind farms.


All the important data a yachtsman needs is there written concisely and clearly. Yachting Monthly
