    ROB'S PASSAGE PLANNER FOR EAST COAST AUSTRALIA.
    By Rob Starkey, Paperback, Spiral-bound, 0.44kg, 210 x 280mm, 122 pages Graphics, maps, Screen Shots. 4TH Edition.
    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, now in its 4th Edition with an expanded scope and content addresses the information challenge of sailing the East Coast of Australia, from Lizard Island in North Queensland to Hobart Tasmania.
    It 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. its greatest value will be not only in the wealth of material that it provides to complement the existing pilots and cruising guides, but in the reliability of the highly detailed information.

    100 MAGIC MILES of the GREAT BARRIER REEF and THE WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS. 11th Edition.
    By David Colfelt. Pbk, 0.95 kgs, 210mm x 280mm, 256 pages, full colour maps, charts, plans and photographs. Published 2016
    This is the 11th edition of a book referred to as 'The Bible' in the Whitsundays. First published in 1985, it has been continuously revised to keep pace with the many changes that have taken place in one of Australia's most popular holiday destinations. The book provides exhaustive, reliable detail about every nook and cranny of the Whitsundays, including the many splendid anchorages in Australia's finest cruising grounds. But it is more than a cruising guide.
    This book covers the whole Whitsunday area, a particularly beautiful part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, located in the Queensland tropics between latitudes 20 and 21 south. The Cumberland Islands (today more often referred to as the Whitsundays) have held a strong attraction to seafarers since James Cook charted them in 1770, although the islands were discovered long before then by Aboriginal people - in fact, before they were islands.
    The Whitsundays consist of over one hundred continental islands and islets with fringing coral reefs, most of which are today unspoiled national parks. Holiday resorts are found on a number of them. The Great Barrier Reef lies a few nautical miles beyond, and many travellers have their first taste of Barrier Reef magic aboard one of the many charter vessels and cruise boats that depart from the mainland and islands daily to explore these vibrant turquoise waters. This book is aboard most of these vessels.
    100 Magic Miles makes entertaining reading when not being used as working reference. It provides a general introduction to the Great Barrier Reef and its fascinating marine life, and includes everything one needs to know to get the most out of a holiday in the Whitsundays. This 11th Edition appears not to have been revised but looks more like a straight reprint.

    BEACON TO BEACON -YEPPOON TO TWEED HEADS.
    By Maritime Safety Queensland, Paperback in clear plastic wallet, 210 x 297mm, 194 pages, full colour maps and charts. Published 2014

    This "must have" cruising guide covers the Southern Queensland coastline from Tweed Heads on the Gold Coast in the South to Yeppoon just north of Gladstone in the North, including the Brisbane and Bremer rivers, the Great Sandy Strait and the Fitzroy River.
    This directory has proven to be a well-used and extremely practical tool specifically designed for use aboard recreational craft and to navigate your way around waterways. It helps boaties to rapidly identify aids to navigation, it generates confidence in plotting and running a course, and increases their boating safety knowledge.
    The Coastal chartlets display latitude and longitude which means it is much easier to keep the directory up to date by accessing the Australian Notices to Mariners.
