Arctic and Northern Waters new edition

This handbook from the Royal Cruising Club Pilotage Foundation by Andrew Wilkes covers the Northwest and Northeast Passages through the Arctic Ocean as well as Faroe, Iceland and Greenland. Incorporating information collected on a number of voyages over recent years this work is an impressive resource which brings together experience and background data on a region that is not only in the news but increasingly accessible to cruising yachts.

This second edition contains many updates and revisions, including new photos and harbour plans.   

Author Andrew Wilkes started his working life as a Radio Officer in the merchant navy but came ashore in his twenties to work in the mobile telecoms industry.  He has been an active cruising sailor since his teenage years.  He's a RYA Yachtmaster (Ocean) Instructor and member of the Royal Cruising Club. 

Andrew and his wife Máire's current boat is Annabel J, a 56ft steel gaff cutter.  They enjoy sailing in remote places and have cruised to Chile, Argentina, the Baltic, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Baffin Island, the Northwest Passage, Labrador, Newfoundland and Alaska.
