A new and indispensable companion for planning Thames Estuary passages. This set of tables enables navigators to select the best routes according to tide times. A set of tide tables, Imray charts, East Coast Pilot and now Crossing the Thames Estuary provide all the information that is needed to fully explore the estuary and coasts of Suffolk, Essex and Kent. Designed to help plan your journey across the complex waters of the Thames Estuary quickly, easily and accurately by using the tables provided. These tables are based on 32 routes with alternatives for Springs and Neaps and with a choice of speeds between three and seven knots. The time planning tables will answer questions such as: What is the preferred route? What time do I start to ensure sufficient water through swatchways or over banks? What is the best way to get the most help from the tide and still have sufficient water over the banks? The (South) East Coast of England captured Roger Gaspar's imagination back in 1959. Tiller Girl, built at Leigh-on-Sea in 1964, and now a West Mersea resident like Roger and his wife, has taken them safely and comfortably across the Estuary more than a few times. When you pass them (as surely you will) bear in mind that she was built for these waters and might not need as much water as you do!

Well established as ‘the East Coast yachtsman’s bible’, this 20th edition of Jan Harber’s classic cruising companion marks the book’s 60th anniversary. Dating back to 1956 when Jack Coote, Jan’s father, produced the first black and white edition, East Coast Rivers, now extending from Lowestoft to Ramsgate, continues to cover the rivers, curlew-haunted creeks and intricate shoals and swatchways of the Thames Estuary and surrounding rivers. Comprehensive pilotage and nautical information based on years of local knowledge is complemented by port information and local maritime history, helping cruising sailors to make the most of their visit to the East Coast. The text is illustrated throughout with updated charts and photographs, including spectacular aerial shots of a number of the rivers and entrances that make up this cherished cruising ground. Not only a pilot guide, this is the memoir of a family’s history; exploring, capturing and celebrating this extraordinary sailing area.

Shane and Tim Spall are on the second leg of a very big adventure, taking their Dutch barge The Princess Matilda around the coast of Britain. From Matilda’s winter berth in Cardiff, Shane and Tim follow the Welsh coast, before ambitiously deciding to visit the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland. Along the way they cross Cardigan Bay in the company of a pod of dolphins, meet the king and queen of Piel Island, get lost in shipping lanes near Liverpool, successfully cross the notorious Irish Sea (twice!), accidentally sail through an army firing range, and experience the matchless beauty of Scotland’s Caledonian canal. Emerging into the North Sea at Inverness, they set a course down the east coast for London, back where their journey began. Tim and Shane aren’t the amateur sailors they once were, but things still don’t always go to plan. It’s not easy navigating our dangerous coastal waters, and crashing waves and strong tides can be terrifying. But it’s exhilarating too, and the realisation of a dream they have had for a very long time. It’s a slow journey, but a satisfying one, visiting fishing villages and ports, and exploring Britain’s windswept coast. Along the way they meet brave lifeboat crews, lockkeepers, fishermen and a whole host of people who make their living or their leisure on the water. The Princess Matilda Comes Home is a funny and warm hearted story about sharing a great adventure with someone you love.

The current volume provides examples of how environmental hazards such as landslides, earthquakes, mountain processes, cold climate processes and tidal flows and currents can affect the energy supply infrastructure. In times of uncertainty, the security of the European cross-border energy supply infrastructure, such as pipelines, has great importance. Whilst the potential effects of political disagreement, economic inequalities and social differences are relatively well understood, the impact of environmental change is often poorly appreciated by decision-makers. New approaches have been examined for monitoring of hazardous landslide processes, including early warning systems, and near-real-time 3D data processing and visualization. The scientific problems of environmental systems design have been discussed and approaches for their implementation have been suggested. New integrated remote sensing techniques consisting mainly of hyperspectral and radar imagery are presented together with the processing of monitoring data using GIS techniques and, in particular, dynamic visualization. Attention is also given to conceptual issues of environmental and energy security and the role of education, to help resolve environmental problems through cooperation in the development of the European energy supply infrastructure.
