A completely new edition of the Clyde Cruising Club’s Sailing Directions for the Outer Hebrides was published at the 2013 London Boat Show. This is the second volume to be written by the CCC and published by Imrays in their new series combining the CCC Sailing Directions with Martin Lawrence’s well known Yachtsmen’s Pilots.
The new book is over 60 pages longer than the Club’s previous Outer Hebrides volume and the content has been thoroughly updated and revised. Much of the additional material incorporates Martin Lawrence’s aerial photography though there are now more anchorages included as well as expanded text where that has been thought necessary. The format of the book follows the pattern set by the first in the series, Firth of Clyde, but the coverage and arrangement of the book remains the same, starting with Barra and the islands to the south and proceeding northward to Lewis and finishing with the west coast, St. Kilda and the Flannans.
The new book will be sold through all the usual outlets at £27.50. CCC members will be able to purchase copies from the Club office at the special member’s price of £18.00 plus p&p.
