This guide also comprises 184 plans for harbours and marinas, and 427 plans for bays and anchorages, each with a wealth of practical symbols and overviews providing complementary information so that you can sail with peace of mind. A handy wind-rose icon gives wind direction and exposure for each plan. ndy wind-rose icon gives wind direction and exposure for each plan.
Luca Tonghini was born in Brescia, north Italy, in 1961. His early sailing experiences were on Lake Garda. After years of sailing the Tyrrhenian Sea, Luca has recently embarked on an extensive cruise around the Mediterranean in a bid to explore its myriad bays and anchorages, as well as to conduct surveys of all its ports. His love for cartography, offshore yachting and technical drawing has led him to combine his skills to write pilot guides.
