Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author’s own survey work and the latest first-hand information.

The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot’s status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece.

This 13th edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide, but in particular areas of the Ionian, Saronic and northern Greece, visited by the authors since the last edition, have major revisions. Many new photos, often from the air, have been introduced. There are also many new harbour plans.

'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell’s enviable experience of Greek cruising.' Royal Cruising Club.

'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become ‘the bible’ for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association'

'… his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it’s with justification that they are often referred to as ‘the bible.’ John Goode, Sailing Today

‘This is a respected pilot boasting regularly repeated editions over 30-plus years- an impressive continuation of a high standard.’ Edward Cartner, Cruising Magazine

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.
