The expanded third edition of this popular cruising guide encompasses the Greek Dodecanese islands and the Turkish coast eastwards from the Samos Strait to Kas and Kekova. Fully illustrated with up to date plans and numerous new photographs, it is packed with all the essential information for getting to the area, formalities and sailing these beautiful cruising grounds. There is a level of further detail to this coverage in terms of anchorages and other destinations than is found in the Heikell’s Greek Waters Pilot and Turkish Waters and Cyprus Pilot. This handy guide also whets the appetite for the local cuisine and culture and gives some historic context to exploration ashore.

"The fantastic background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives ... a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides." Royal Cruising Club
"... no East Med cruiser will want to sail without a copy." Yachting Monthly

Rod Heikell

Rod Heikell was born in New Zealand and sailed hesitantly around bits of its coast in a variety of yachts. He tried racing in the Hauraki Gulf but was really not much good at it. In England he abandoned academic life and for no good reason other than curiosity bought Roulette, a 1950s plywood JOG yacht nearly 20ft long, and sailed it down to the Mediterranean. He worked on charter her and delivered yachts until, in ignorance of the scale of the task, he set off to write a yachtsman's guide to Greece. This was followed by guides for other countries in the Mediterranean. He has sailed back and forth between England and the Mediterranean, including a trip down the Danube and on to Turkey in Rosinante, an 18ft Mirror Offshore. In 1996 he took his forth yacht, Tetra, to SE Asia and back for the research for Indian Ocean Cruising Guide. Apart from sailing the 'wrong' way and back again the 'right' way across the Indian Ocean, he has done four transatlantics on his own yachts and also cruised extensively in other parts of the world on other yachts. He is currently back at the end of a circumnavigationand sailing again in his beloved Mediterranean.
