For more than 80 years The Shell Channel Pilot has been the ultimate authority on English Channel navigation and pilotage. Following the pioneering work of the legendary Adlard Coles, the book was passed to Captain John Coote RN in 1982. In his comparatively short, ten-year tenure, John Coote expanded the coverage from the English coast to include northern France. He also applied a characteristic humour to the shoreside aspect of the text which has been enthusiastically adopted by Tom Cunliffe, the present and third compiler of this unique work. Upgraded and updated regularly, this is the 8th edition published by Imray under Cunliffe¿s hand. `Shell¿ is more than a harbour guide. It also provides a reassuring hand on the shoulder for Channel navigation, with useful passage notes gleaned from the compiler¿s personal experience of more than 40 years running the tides and finding the eddies. His frank remarks regarding harbour and recreational facilities have long been relied upon by sailors of all generations and nationalities. While leading to some enlightening secrets, they have been known to cause landlords whose establishments fall short of the required standard to lose the will to live.Working with harbourmasters and a dedicated group of carefully selected yachtsmen and women, Cunliffe has kept this pilot as up to date as is humanly possible. More than being technically sound, which is to be expected from a Yachtmaster Examiner, the book is also a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Most boating is done in coastal waters, yet being close to land can often present greater dangers than sailing offshore. Near to the coast, sea conditions are more complex: winds and currents change in strength and direction, often unpredictably, waves are distorted by shallows, and even in fine weather there are tidal races, tricky headlands and other areas of rough water that can increase the risks of human error, gear failure and seasickness. Many of the recommended techniques used in offshore voyaging - such as lying to a sea anchor or trailing warps - are not suitable when close to land. In this highly practical guide, filled with helpful tips, real-time techniques and sound advice borne of years of first hand experience, Ken Endean explains the phenomena of rough water and shows how a good understanding of coastal sea conditions and careful passage planning should enable boaters to avoid the roughest areas, seek shelter underway and thereby reduce passage times. He includes advice on: coastal winds and waves, shallow water and shoaling, swells and currents, tides and currents in conflict, estuary effects, bars and banks, when to take the long way, how to read the surface, getting into harbour safely, making the most of smooth water, and much more. Coastal boaters have little scope for mistakes and plenty of opportunities to exercise skill and sound seamanship - this practical down-to-earth book will enable everyone, whether in a yacht or a powerboat, to do just that.

This text integrates a wide range of research and tidal resource theory and data to present a detailed analysis of the physics and oceanography of tidal stream power devices together with a world wide resource analysis. Clearly structured throughout the book is divided into two distinct parts. Part One provides the theoretical background to the subject and deals with the historical development of the harmonic method for the synthesis of tidal currents; the principles of fluid and tidal flow and the principles of device ducts, turbines and electrical systems. A review and analysis of more than forty tidal stream power proposals is also discussed. Part Two provides a comprehensive overview of current practice. The economic modelling of tidal stream power installations is covered with more than three hundred current meter records from around the world used to analyse the potential and cost of tidal stream power on a global basis. Hallmark Features: reviews the tidal resources around the world complete analysis of tidal stream power systems includes historical information on tidal science and biographical information on major figures concentrates on engineering physical geography rather than engineering specifics includes a website with a wide range of computer models, data and simulations
