Adriatic Sea Pilot A cruising guide to the Adriatic coast of Croatia, Volume 1&2' by Split Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia

Croatian part of the Adriatic with an archipelago of over a thousand islands, its crystal clear sea and favourable climate is a marvellous cruising area, a paradise for boaters.

With their increasing interest for this coast, necessary facilities have been built –modern marinas and small harbours - to offer stay, supply and maintenance to small craft and yachts, providing all kinds of information, on weather or cultural and sports events in the area of their interest.

This Pilot published by the Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia is complementary with its regularly issued and updated charts and official publications.

Besides providing up-to-date information relevant to the safety at sea and all the facts on harbours and marinas, it also offers background information on cultural and historical sights, national parks and other natural attractions on the coast and islands, and in the close interior.

1300 Maps of the Croatian Adriatic' by Radovan Marčić, Braslav Karlić, Marko Vučetić, kartograf Slavko Horvat

In this practical guide you will find maps of all the Croatian harbours, marinas, village harbours and piers, quays and bays which are sailing destinations, where you can moor or anchor for the night.

In contrast to other pilots, the destinations here are not presented according to their size, instead of that there are selected places which can provide shelter, even for a six-meters boat. This means that this book will be of use not only to sailors and all who decide to set out on a longer cruise, but also to the owners of the large charter fleets housed in Croatian harbours.

The Little Book of Incredibly Useful Knots: 200 Practical Knots for Sailors, Climbers, Campers & Other Adventurers Hardcover' by Geoffrey Budworth, Jason Dalton

Each knot serves a different purpose, and although it is not necessary to know a large number of different knots -it is important to know which knot is best suited for the conditions in which it is best to be used.

If you didn’t learn knots when you were young, you can still master them quickly. The key is to learn what a given knot should look like when completed, then practice tying it until you can do it with your eyes closed.

The Little Book of Incredibly Useful Knots teaches you which knot to choose and exactly how to tie it, whether you’re constructing a trout fly, repairing a hammock, mooring a boat, securing a load to a car roof rack, or engaging in a rescue or survival situation.
