The so-called ‘yachtsman’s bible’ is going online from July this year.
Reeds Nautical Almanac Online will provide information to cover trips on the Atlantic coast around the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and selected European coastlines including the Mediterranean.
The site will include a comprehensive port and marina services guide and an extensive searchable trade directory.
“The website will continue the Almanac’s tradition of focussing on quality, brevity and accuracy of the information as well as meticulous presentation of all the data required for safe navigation,” Reeds say.
Simon Whittley, Managing Director of Reeds Nautical Online, said: “There has been strong demand to bring this service to the readership.
“Reeds continues to set the standard for pilotage and navigation data and this easy to use online version will uphold this quality and provide a wide range of features that can only be delivered via an online platform.
“The ability to update data in real time is a huge bonus.”
As well as real time navigation tools the site will feature:
– Enhanced chart capability
– Dynamic weather forecasting with synoptic charts
– Tidal predictions and animated tidal flow charts
– Comprehensive port and marina services guide
– Extensive Searchable Trade directory
– A host of Membership benefits
– Mobile phone service.
Janet Murphy, Director of Adlard Coles Nautical, said: “I am delighted that Reeds Nautical Almanac will at last be available online to help yachtsmen plan their passages with all the benefits that electronic search ability can provide.
“As the almanac of choice for many thousands of seafarers, this new development will open up a whole new world of comprehensive, accurate and up to date information for anyone going to sea.”
