  • <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>The Pilote Côtier guide offers precise documentation on ports and anchorages</h2> <p>Some yachtsmen from the north like to criticise the coasts of Provence and the Riviera, which in their eyes are nothing more than a continuous front of built-up areas and large marinas, in a word a real concrete wall. They have never really sailed along these shores from Marseille to Menton. One can only be amazed at the sun-bleached stone cliffs carved out by the deep creeks of Marseille and overflowing with totally deserted islets. Then come the Cyclops wall of Cassis, the highest cliffs in France, the imposing promontory of Cap Sicié, totally inaccessible by land, and all the charming little ports between the large harbour of Toulon and the marshes of the Giens peninsula where pink flamingos nest. The pine-shaded shores of Porquerolles Island have also remained unchanged for centuries and the southern coast is just as wild as many of the Corsican shores.</p> <p>To say that the area around Saint Tropez is overrun with rich villas with their feet in the water is to ignore the reddish rocky escarpments, the great fleeces of pine trees which descend to the sea from the Capes Lardier and Camarat. The multitude of small creeks of the Trayas coast between St Raphaël and Cannes, can also only make you love Mediterranean landscapes. And even in the vicinity of the big cities of Nice and Monaco, one can still find, as in the bay of Villefranche, some quiet anchorages in a nature preserved from concrete. The Italian coast is undoubtedly one of the most urbanised, but its coastline remains mountainous and the atmosphere of its ports is always lively and attractive.</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>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>

  • <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>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>
