Cruising Guide to the Canary Islands

This new practical Cruising Guide to the Canary Islands offers a useful mix of cruising and navigational information, sightseeing recommendations and tips from local sailors for visitors to the beautiful islands of this Atlantic archipelago: La Graciosa, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.

The Canary Islands have been used as a stepping stone for Atlantic crossings since 1492 when Columbus made his first famous transatlantic crossing, but they are not yet well known to the wider cruising community. This is likely to change over the next few years as services in the harbours and marinas conitnue to undergo repaid improvement.

One of the islands' greatest atttractions is the excellent climate which averages 21 degress centigrade throughout the year - an eternal summer for northern Europeans used to the unpredictable weather of higher latitudes.

The Cruising Guide to the Canary Islands is written by local sailors Oliver Solanas Heinrichs and Mike Westin. In it they share their inside knowledge and demonstrate that the islands make an excellent cruising ground in their own right, not just as a stopover on the way to the Caribbean. The guide includes Imray's clear and informative plans. You can purchase it here.
