The Cruising Almanac is an annual publication, focussing particularly on the needs of the cruissing yachtsman by providing clear pilotage notes as well as all the usual almanac data. Compiled by The Cruising Association and Imray, it covers Northwest Europe from the Shetlands to Gibraltar and West Ireland to the Baltic. For this 2012 edition the text has been fully revised and corrected. In particular major revisions have been applied to the sections covering the Netherlands and Spain and Portugal. The Cruising Almanac comes with 2012 tide tables with data on 47 standard ports as a separate booklet.
