This guide aims to assist boaters cruising on inland waterways in France and Belgium (and Luxembourg). Updated each year by Cruising Association (CA) members actively cruising the waterways, it has the advantage that it is very much more detailed and up to date than other published guides. It also indicates what moorings are like, not just their location. In an extensive introduction and detailed information section, it explains the character of the various waterways; the challenges to be overcome; the equipment needed; licences and regulations; sources of further information; 'rules of the road' and many other items of interest to the inland waterways cruiser. It also includes a 25 per cent discount offer on first year's CA membership to purchasers joining online during the year. Members then have access to the online edition of the guide, which contains hyperlinks to the CA's proprietary CAptain's Mate app, enabling users to access the most up-to-date information on routes and mooring locations.

The Cruising Almanac remains the perfect onboard companion for cruising sailors. This 2023 edition is introduced by Mike Golding, OBE, who reminds us that “The Cruising Almanac provides that ‘hard copy’ information which today’s electronic navigators so frequently lack.” Compiled annually by a team of Cruising Association editors and Imray, the Almanac encompasses Northwest Europe from the Shetlands to Gibraltar and from the Baltic to the west coast of Ireland. This 2023 edition includes some changes to the presentation of essential information to make it more readily accessible. The Netherlands section has been revised so that the format conforms to the other regions. A new chapter for Northwest Spain has been created to allow more extensive overall coverage of the Spanish and Portuguese Atlantic coasts. Updating of the Almanac continues throughout the year, with corrections published monthly on the Cruising Association website Almanac corrections page. https://www.theca.org.uk/almanac/corrections

This is a comprehensive companion to the long coastline which ranges from Spain and the edge of the Pyrenees to the Alpes Maritimes and Italy. It covers the flat country of Languedoc-Roussillon, the coast of the Golfe du Lion, the Rhône delta and the Camargue, the industrial Golfe de Fos, the Côte d’Azur and the French Riviera and Monaco. The island of Corsica and the waterways that run behind the coast linking the Canal du Midi and the étangs to the Rhône are covered in separate chapters. The authors spent the summer and autumn of 2016 cruising in Corsica and then across to the Golfe du Fos where they left Skylax for the winter. During their travels they visited a large number of harbours and anchorages, collecting the latest information and taking new photographs. There are new aerial photos for many places and in particular for ports and harbours in Languedoc – Roussillon. This major 2017 edition contains substantial change to the content. ‘A new Mediterranean France pilot from Rod and Lu Heikell is now available from Imray and, needless to say, if you have not got one and plan to cruise this coast and inevitably Corsica, then rush out and buy it!’ Royal Cruising Club.

This guide, which by this its third edition has already been hailed as one of the most thorough and up to date guides to cruising in the Netherlands, provides detailed information on over 50 cruising routes in the 12 different provinces of that country. Aimed at motor yachts cruising the 3500kms of Netherlands waterways that offer at least 4.0 metres air draft, the guide includes step-by-step navigation details for each route; bridge and lock opening procedures and times; descriptions of moorings and facilities; useful sources of information on every aspect of Netherlands cruising; a glossary of important Dutch terms and tips offering unique insights into particular locations. It is the first book to provide this level of detail and to be written to supplement the national Waterkaarten Nederlands charts. It even corrects numerous errors to be found in this and other apps and published guides. The guide is written by Cruising Association (CA) members Andy and Gwen Mulholland, who have cruised virtually every waterway in the Netherlands over the past decade, and edited by fellow CA member Gordon Knight. It is updated annually via reports from CA members actively cruising the inland waterways, several hundred of which are submitted each year, and includes a 25 per cent discount offer on first year's CA membership to purchasers applying online during the year. Members then have access to additional hyperlinks to the CA's proprietary CAptain's Mate app, enabling them to read the most up to date information on mooring locations and navigation restrictions as they are posted.
