Cruising Guide

On the east coast one soon runs out of new places to go. This is a venture to encourage cruising on the Forth,  anchoring off and going ashore by dinghy to explore.  It is intended to build up a collection of this material as a companion to the pilot handbook.

This material may be copied provided all sources are acknowledged.

The disclaimer which applies to the Pilot Handbook also applies to this Guide and is repeated below.

The guide is only available on this web site.

Accordingly, the Association, the authors and publishers hereby formally disclaim any and all liability for any personal injury, loss and/or damage howsoever caused, whereby reason of error, inaccuracy, omission or ambiguity in relation to the contents and/or information contained in this book.
