Imray has worked with the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage Foundation since 1985. The Foundation is a charity which collects and researches written, photographic and chart information relating to small boat pilotage, navigation and operation, climate and weather conditions, including information from remote areas of the world where other sources of information are scarce or non-existent.
The authors who work with the Foundation are respected and experienced cruising sailors, with thousands of nautical miles of cruising under their belts.
Once the Pilotage Foundation has researched and edited the material about a particular cruising area, Imray shapes it into a book, creating the cartography (often where there is very little official survey data as a source) and combining this with the the manuscript and photos to create a new cruising guide. We also licence this content to publishers in other countries for editions in Spanish, French, German and Italian.
