Turkish Waters and Cyprus Pilot covers the entire coast of Turkey from the Black Sea down the Aegean coast and around to the Syrian border. The coasts, ports and marinas of the island of Cyprus are also described.

There are few more beautiful cities in the world that it is possible to sail into the heart of, but that is what the authors were able to do in Istanbul while researching this, the tenth edition. Their research also took them south as far as Göçek and to Cyprus.

Much has changed, with new marinas completed and more under construction, but much has also stayed the same, namely the warmth and hospitality of the people you encounter.

This new edition includes all the latest information and marina developments, with new plans and photos, many of which were taken by the authors.

Turkish Waters and Cyprus Pilot is considered the essential companion to sailing these waters.

‘I would take his Turkish Waters and Cyprus Pilot as my book on the Desert Island.’ Michael Buerk, Yachting Monthly

‘… a must for anyone sailing in this area.’ The Little Ship

‘The wonderful photographs of the Turkish coast together with the descriptions of the harbours and their histories would make this book just as suitable for the coffee table as the navigators section.’ Cruising (Cruising Association)

‘Comprehensively researched and superbly presented, no East Med cruising yacht 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.
