  • <h2>The pleasure is close to the coast!</h2> <p>This book gives you everything you need to know about piloting, manoeuvring, tidal range, wind direction, beaching, anchoring, regulations, plus 40 favourite stopovers. Winds, currents, tides, rocks... All good reasons not to get too close to the coast. And yet, what a pleasure to venture where only the locals dare to go. The pleasure of exploring the smallest cove, of going around this rock to reach this deserted beach, of finding the pass to this small port. A coastal stroll, a sailing programme to suit you.</p> <p>+ 40 favourite stopovers, from Dunkirk to Biarritz and from Collioure to the Lavezzi Islands.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>With a partner, anything is possible!</h2> <p>A practical memo where all the situations of sailing together are considered in great detail. The friends you were counting on have failed you! On the family side, no one is really motivated. And yet the weather looks good and it would be a real shame not to take advantage of it. That leaves your old friend. He's always up for it, but he's not quite up to speed. But never mind. The call of the sea is too strong. This is much more common than it seems. Provided that you prepare your navigation well, divide the tasks well and explain the manoeuvres to come, with all the current technical developments, setting off with two people is no longer really a problem. With a good autopilot, one crew member in the cockpit and one on the foredeck are generally enough to manage all the sails at sea, to moor at a pontoon or to take a mooring, to anchor in a cove, to follow the navigation with the GPS and to cook. And twelve hours of sleep per day and per person is far too much to be tired...</p> <p>But be careful all the same. It's before leaving that you have to anticipate all the gestures, all the unforeseen events so as not to be caught off guard. Dominic Bourgeois wanted to make this special edition a practical memo where all the situations of sailing together are considered in great detail.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>Discover all the pretty spots along the 280 miles from Marseille to Barcelona!</h2> <p>This is forgetting that until the approach of the Etang de Berre, the high relief shoreline is often steep, just like on the western shore of the Etang, and this long beach is in fact cut by numerous graus, these entrances to ponds which give access to sites which are not lacking in attractiveness, such as Aigues Mortes and its old ramparts, Sète and the small oyster-farming ports of the Thau lagoon, Agde and its black lava cathedral, or Leucate and its vast lagoon without forgetting Gruissan where a picturesque canal gives access to the old village in concentric circles. </p> <p>After St Cyprien, without any transition, the sand gives way to the rocks of the Pyrenees. Collioure at the foot of the Templar castle is a real postcard setting and Cerbère almost a mountain port. Once past the border, you come to Cap Creus, an extremely wild coastline, accessible only by rare goat paths, with jagged rocks drawing tiny coves in an astonishing variety of coloured rocks that announce the reddish rocks of the Costa Brava with its steep slopes covered with pine woods. This is a far cry from the image of straight beaches lined with tall buildings that characterise the Spanish coast south of Blanés. Even the fishing ports are not lacking in charm with their ramblas lined with small, typically Catalan restaurants.  </p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>This book contains all you need to know about the new ropes, Dyneema, flat-line, square-line and other Vectran and Technora, their strength and elongation.</h2> <p>For this special issue, which deals with the more specific aspect of modern ropes, we have once again called on Patrick Moreau, the great specialist in seamanship. This book contains as a preamble everything you need to know about the new ropes, Dyneema, flat-line, square-line and other Vectran and Technora. In particular their tensile strength, elongation and chafe resistance. It deals with all the work that yachtsmen can easily do on board their yachts to improve manoeuvres on deck, in the rig or around the fittings.</p> <p>Patrick Moreau offers a complete chapter on the basic and essential knots that every good sailor must know. In addition to the classic knot tying on a twisted rope, the aim is also to explain to sailors the use of modern ropes, mainly braided, which are increasingly found on our boats, for halyards and sheets as well as for mooring lines. Making a button halyard with a pure core rope, over-sheathing a halyard to limit wear in a cleat, making a diminished sheet for the furling jib, a textile grommet to replace a shackle, a joint between a chain and a rope to facilitate the passage through the windlass are techniques that riggers have been using for a long time on racing yachts.</p> <p>This special edition is the first book to deal with modern seamanship; it provides all sailors with techniques previously reserved for professionals. Photographic step-by-step instructions for learning and understanding.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>The essential guide to the most beautiful cruises in Southern Brittany and the Vendée to sail safely </h2> <p>The coasts of Southern Brittany and the Vendée are among the most beautiful in France. For yachtsmen, it is an exceptional sailing area, with islands to explore, rivers to sail up, creeks to take shelter in, points to go around and picturesque little ports to discover. But it is also a complex sailing area, with many traps, between shoals, currents, passes and channels. And simply reading the map does not always allow you to navigate in complete safety. This Coastal Pilot, entirely revised and corrected, is the essential tool for experienced and inexperienced sailors alike. It contains all the information and advice needed to navigate, day or night, and to create the most beautiful cruises.</p> <p>For this new edition, we have modernised the presentation with even more photos and plans, with clear and precise comments, perfectly documented information and up to date with the latest modifications. This work has been carried out by authors whose knowledge of these coasts is the fruit of their countless navigations. It is this competence and seriousness that have made the Pilote côtier collection a success with all yachtsmen for over 40 years.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>From the calas of Menorca to the great beaches of Formentera, the essential guide to the Balearic Islands!</h2> <p>Just a day's sail from the French Mediterranean coast, the Balearic Islands are a dream destination. Four islands which have in common a remarkably sunny climate, moderate summer breezes, easily accessible ports and indented coasts where a multitude of coves, each more beautiful than the next, are hidden. Minorca, the most northerly, is also the wildest. Its real little fjords, the roadsteads of Fornells and Port Mahon, offer well-sheltered waters. Mallorca is more grandiose with a very contrasting coastline, from the impressive cliffs of the west coast to the small coves of the east coast, not forgetting the small pearls that are the islands of Cabrera and Dragonera. Ibiza and Formentera are even more sunny and carefree. If their coves and beaches are an invitation to drop anchor, their harbours are always buzzing with life. All the information you need to sail safely. An indispensable book, in addition to the nautical chart and the GPS.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>Dare the adventure of night sailing thanks to the wise and learned advice of Jean-Louis Guéry</h2> <p>For many yachtsmen, night sailing is still forbidden, because it is too frightening, too risky or too mysterious.

You will also learn about the marvellous world of the stars and the stars that enchant these nocturnal navigations.</p> <p>This special issue is also very practical and will introduce you to all the latest equipment that is essential for the boat and its crew.

  • <h2>In coastal sailing, for a good number of yachtsmen, the practice of mooring in a temporary anchorage is a bit like the jam jar in the grandmother's cupboard: as tempting as it is inaccessible!</h2> <p>Tempting because we can imagine the pleasures of small isolated coves, evenings at anchor bathed in the scent of pine trees... Inaccessible because anchoring in the open sea brings with it a few demons such as the anchor that chases or gets hung up, The most beautiful anchorages, manoeuvres, anchors, advice and good practices that will enable you to approach your next anchorages calmly and safely.</p> <h2>Features </h2>

  • <h2>Jean-Louis Guéry shares with us his in-depth knowledge of cruising and the thousand details that make sailing a pleasure to share.</h2> <p>From the helmsman, he anticipates the boat's reactions, but willingly leaves room for the crew. From the captain, he has retained a sense of organisation but rarely gives orders. He may have been a skipper in his youth, but nowadays he prefers to sail with friends or family. The expression "Only master after God" makes him smile, even though he knows that he is in charge of the boat. He is the SKIPPER. He or she, for that matter! By mixing genres, the anglicism on the front page of this new special edition is definitely very practical!</p> <p>Because skippering a sailboat is a combination of functions. Mind you, this does not necessarily mean going fast or manoeuvring as if on parade. Let's rather focus on what makes a successful cruise: a good knowledge of your boat and systematic checks, an in-depth study of the sailing area and routes, good reflexes to deal with an emergency situation... the list is long but it's worth taking stock of it before setting off. And if you think that a few revisions are welcome, you will find in the last part an inventory of the thematic training courses currently offered in France.</p> <p>Jean-Louis Guéry, a former base manager at the Glénans Nautical Centre, journalist for Voiles et Voiliers and editor of nautical instructions for the SHOM, shares his in-depth knowledge of cruising with us. He gives us his vision of this "good skipper" and the thousand details that make sailing a pleasure to share.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>GPS is a great navigation aid. However, it is important to know how to use it and to identify the risks in order to better prevent them.</h2> <p>Learn how to use all the GPS functions, and at a glance on your screen you will see where you are and where you are going, how long it will take you to get there and what time you will be in port. As your boat progresses, the various displays, figures and graphs show the constantly changing data, which is both fascinating and reassuring.</p> <p>As an everyday tool, GPS has become commonplace for road traffic or nature walks. Its nautical use, however, remains the most sophisticated of all, along with air navigation. At sea, a lack of settings, a handling error or a wrong reading can result in a shipwreck, with much more serious consequences than getting lost in the open country. Marine sense - a mixture of thoughtful analysis of all the information on board, observation of the maritime environment and constant sensory monitoring - consists first and foremost in never relying on a single instrument, even if it is as precise and magical as the GPS. When the reefs appear in front of the bow, it is too late to wonder if the position displayed on the screen is really accurate...</p> <p>This special edition is aimed at beginners as well as those who already use a GPS on a regular basis but who do not check its correct operation, rarely pay attention to its settings and hardly use its advanced functions...</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>300 miles to sail around Corsica and down to Olbia!</h2> <p>Pilote Côtier Bénéteau n° 3 gives a precise description of all the small ports and anchorages of these superb shores, going around Corsica in a clockwise direction, as the prevailing S.W. wind, the Libeccio, allows most of the sailing to be done downwind.

All the information and advice to enter ports, reach an anchorage or navigate a difficult passage.

  • <h2>This Bénéteau Coast Pilot is truly the most useful nautical document on board a cruising boat after the nautical charts.</h2> <p>It is often said that sailors who frequent the coasts of North Brittany never feel in real difficulty anywhere else on the seas of the globe. This is probably a little excessive but it is certain that these jagged shores, with rocks jagged by the harsh storms, where the channels are sometimes not wide enough to cross, where the tidal range which increases rapidly towards the East reaches in the bay of St Malo, a frightening record of 13.5 m, creating violent currents which raise dangerous breakers against the slightest swell, all these difficulties require from the navigators a perfect knowledge of the channels, of the alignments of the shoals, if one wants to discover all the small beaching ports which nestle in the bays, the creeks, the rias of these difficult shores. This is where the Pilote Côtier Bénéteau from Saint Malo to Brest proves to be invaluable with the multitude of information it has gathered from hundreds of professional sailors who are familiar with these areas.</p> <h2>Features</h2>

  • <h2>By following the information in this Pilote Côtier Bénéteau, even a beginner can venture from Concarneau into the numerous passes of the Glénan archipelago. </h2> <p>This Bénéteau Coastal Pilot is not only for experienced sailors. Cabotage along the northern coast of Belle Ile does not present any real difficulties even if the currents are sometimes strong in the passage near the Teignouse and raise a rather rough sea. Similarly, the Lorient harbour offers a calm stretch of water, as do the rivers of Pouldu, Belon and Pont Aven, as well as the magnificent river Odet, whose ascent is a beautiful country walk in the heart of the Breton countryside. With a little attention and by following the information in this Pilote Côtier Bénéteau, even a beginner can venture from Concarneau into the numerous passes of the Glénan archipelago. </p> <p>But it is true, going further N.W. than from Loctudy and the river of Pont l'Abbé, the coastline takes on an undeniably more severe character. You don't turn the tip of Penmarch like the one in Quiberon and at the Audierne anchorage, you can't improvise to cross the Raz de Sein where the violent currents raise breakers which can put an inexperienced crew in danger. Departure must be at a specific time, and routes must be followed on precise alignments. This is where this Bénéteau Coastal Pilot comes in handy, providing a wealth of information based on the experience of many sailors, so that you can face the dangers of the tip of Brittany in the safest possible conditions and take full advantage of the beauty of these wild shores.  </p> <h2>Features</h2>
