Clyde Cruising Club Publications and Imray Laurie Norie and Wilson have recently announced the merger of the Clyde Cruising Club Sailing Directions with Martin Lawrence's Yachtsman's Pilot series.
The first of these new merged editions, Firth of Clyde, was launched under the Imray imprint at the London Boat Show in January 2012 and it is planned to merge all the Club's west coast of Scotland Sailing Directions with Martin Lawrence's Yachtsman's Pilots over the course of the next few years.
Whilst the format and many of the familiar characteristics of the CCC Directions have been retained, the content has been fully revised by the CCC editorial team. This major new edition combines text, plans and photographs from both the CCC Sailing Directions for the Firth of Clyde and Martin Lawrence's popular Yachtsman's Pilot - Clyde to Colonsay.
As before, Firth of Clyde extends beyond its titled area to the North Channel and the coast of Northern Ireland (Rathlin Island to Belfast Lough), and on the Scottish side southwards from Stranraer to Portpatrick and beyond to the Solway Firth. Although the Isle of Man is no longer covered, the new book includes details of the developing Glasgow Harbour area and the many new marinas that have been established on the Clyde since the last edition was published.
With a softcover, spiral bound, A4 format, the new book is almost 50 pages longer than its predecessor
