1998. 9th Millennium Edition. A guide to the north-east coast of New Zealand and anchorages from the Three Kings Islands to Cape Kidnappers.
Extremely popular NZ sailing/cruising guide.
The COASTAL CRUISING HANDBOOK is a direct descendant of the Clyde Cruising Club's Sailing Directions for the West Coast of Scotland, long acknowledged in the U.K. as essential equipment for the navigator cruising on that rockbound coast. The idea of a similar book for our own cruising grounds was proposed to the General Committee of Royal Akarana Yacht Club in January 1971 by two members of that committee, Mary Hamilton and D'Arcy Whiting. The appearance of the first edition within 18 months was a tribute to the enthusiasm shown by all the Club's members for this project.
The first edition sold out within 9 months and a reprint was exhausted within the next year. A supplement was published in 1974 and the second edition, incorporating the corrections from this and extending the area of the coast covered, appeared in 1977, to be reprinted in 1978. The continuing demand indicates that this book fills a very real need for the navigator in New Zealand waters.
