Since his first visit more than fifty years ago, author Graham Hutt has sailed the coastline of North Africa extensively in a number of yachts, from a 29ft Stella to a 65ft schooner. His infectious enthusiasm for the Arab countries of the Mahgreb helped to open the region to cruising sailors, and it is again becoming popular as a destination outside of Europe. Di Stoddard has worked with Graham to update this fifth edition.
This comprehensive guide provides detailed information on marinas, harbours and anchorages as well as introductory sections covering topics specific to the area, including the modernised formalities in most ports. In several locations new harbours have opened and facilities have markedly improved.
Familiar Imray cartography is included throughout- harbour plans have been updated and extended to reflect changes, and many new photographs are included to assist navigation and inform the reader about this most beguiling region. Whether overwintering or on passage across the Mediterranean or down the Atlantic coast, North Africa is an essential cruising companion.
