About this Product

The Shell Channel Pilot stands alone as the ultimate authority on the English Channel.  More than just a harbour guide, it provides a reassuring hand on the shoulder for English Channel navigation from acclaimed broadcaster, author and Yachtmaster Examiner Tom Cunliffe's personal experience of more than 40 years running the tides and finding the eddies.

Working with harbourmasters and a dedicated group of carefully selected yachtsmen and women, Cunliffe has kept this pilot as up to date as is possible. Each section is prefaced by comprehensive passage notes combined with advice about navigation, regulations and paperwork on both sides of the water. Best of all are the pilotage notes, the plans, the aerial and approach shots for harbours great and obscure, plus the author's frank remarks about shoreside facilities. The net result is unique - rigorous navigation advice to pilot you safely through the rocks, combined with a light touch that makes it a thoroughly enjoyable read. 

The Pilot has a long and illustrious history, with the first edition published in the 1930s.  Following the pioneering work of the legendary Adlard Coles, the book was passed to Captain John Coote RN in 1982. It has been under the Imray imprint since the early 1990s.
