Rob's Passage Planner for the Australian east coast - a little beauty

Thinking of sailing the eastern coast of Australia any time soon? There's one book, just out now, which will make the task a whole lot simpler, modestly called 'Rob's Passage Planner'. It's a beauty and I was happy to endorse it!

The perfect complement to your cruising guide or pilot -  .. .  
Part of the challenge for the recreational cruising sailor and delivery crews, is the amount of research required to undertake a passage, whether it be a day sail or a six month sojourn.

Rob’s Passage Planner, which has been beta-tested for years, addresses the information challenge of sailing the East Coast of Australia, from Lizard Island in North Queensland to Hobart Tasmania.

This is NOT a Pilot; rather it complements the many excellent Pilots for this region by bringing together information such as State regulatory and safety requirements, weather sources and trends, communications, seamanship information, incident management and health care.

At its core, is a set of 10 chartlets in 3 variants, plus a set of marina maps. Passage scenario chartlets detail rhumb line distances for the likely passages between anchorages with a passage time calculator. Lights chartlets show the major coastal lights, plotted at their location, showing visible distances and light characteristics.

VHF Repeater chartlets detail the location of VHF repeater stations with maximum and minimum transmission distances. Marina maps covering the major marinas along the coast are presented in a standard format, detailing contact information, arrival point, entry, berth configuration and available services.

This Planner will enable you not only to manage your passages with greater ease because you have the information at your fingertips, it will also allow you to change your plan, when conditions demand it, with greater speed and efficiency.

The Planner has been many years in the making and the extent of detail and its accuracy, shows. It will not only provide a wealth of material to complement the existing pilots and cruising guides, but you'll be able to rely utterly on the highly detailed information.

You can buy the planner online at Boat Books, by clicking here. However, it is a limited print edition, so don't wait until it's sold out!
