Almanacs for Azores and Canaries

Hi,

I've been looking at almanacs on Amazon but couldn't find one for 2011 that covers the Azores and the Canaries, I'm assuming one exists but Amazon doesn't have it. Does anyone know a better place to search for them? I'll need one for the Caribbean as well.

Also, I'm thinking of buying this chart: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Imray-Chart-...9274745&sr=8-1 -- do you think it will be detailed enough to be useful in specific areas, or are these meant for general planning only?

Cheers,
Gus

That will only get you close. You will need charts with much greater detail in each area that you intend to sail.

All you need to know is here. Updates available online.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atlantic-Isl...9366722&sr=1-2

Also - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pilotage-Fou...9366727&sr=1-3

Lots of useful info, including lots of port info around the Atlantic but only the main ones.
