Italian Waters Pilot is the only guide for yachtsmen in English that covers the coasts of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Sardinia, Sicily, the Ionian 'heel' and Malta in one volume.

This new tenth edition builds on first-hand research by the authors through the Tuscan islands, along the Tyrrhenian and Ionian coasts, to Sardinia and Sicily, Malta and Gozo.

Numerous revisions have been made throughout, with the text, plans and photographs undergoing a complete overhaul. Care has been taken to research the details of marina developments. Where it has been available information is given on proposed changes and extensions to yacht harbours. Marine reserves are now an important feature of the coasts and off-lying islands, particularly in Sardinia and Sicily, and this edition provides updated details of the latest regulations. Climate change and extreme weather events are becoming a major issue and this edition includes a section on the how climate change might affect sailing in the Mediterranean.

Italian Waters Pilot is the last word on the area for yachts cruising there and on their way between western and eastern parts of the Mediterranean.

Rod and Lucinda Heikell have also authored companion guides on France, Greece and Turkey which are acclaimed as the best pilot books currently available.

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.
