This book is essential reading for any yachtsman, for it will guide you through the locks, canals, rivers and the problems of negotiating Mediterranean ports. What does it cost? What gear should you take? What paperwork do you have to complete? Must you take a pilot down the Rhone? Where do you tie up in Gibraltar?
These and many more questions are answered in this invaluable book, which is filled to the gunwale with useful and practical information.
