CA Almanac 2017

Cruising Almanac

Authoritative Pilotage for Tidal Europe

The authority and reputation of the Cruising Almanac grows each year and it’s no wonder. In fact we sold out of the entire print run this year. The co-operation of the talents of cruising people, combined with Imray’s publishing skills, is unbeatable and make it the reference for serious cruising in NW Europe.

It covers the area from the Shetlands in the north around the coasts and islands of Great Britain and Ireland; on the continent, from Bergen into the approaches to the Baltic and right down to Gibraltar. Its main aim is to help us to make enjoyable passages and to get us safely in and out of harbours and anchorages. The expertise of Imray is evident in the full colour, detailed chartlets which accompany most entries.

Up to Date

It is compiled by CA members from first- hand experience of each area. All sections, both text and plans, have been checked and revised throughout to reflect the changing cruising scene. Members’ reports form an important contribution to the Almanac and maintain the CA’s ethos of mutual help. Updating of the Almanac continues throughout the year and corrections are published every two months. They can be freely downloaded from the CA website here.

Passage Notes

Passage notes, easily identified by their pale blue background colour, are incorporated in the main text.

We avoid unhelpful clutter to make it easier to read. In its A4 format, it is the practical almanac.

Tide tables for 47 standard ports are included – published in a separate booklet. Full tidal details for secondary ports are also included.


The cost of postage for the Almanac and Tide tables is £10 for UK shipping, because the weight is 2kg. If you are visiting CA House, a CA Section meeting or a boat show, please arrange to pick up a copy there. (International shipping costs will vary).
