Best Pilot Book for the Scillies?

Can anyone advise on the best Pilot Book to cover the Scilly Isles in depth?

Re: Best Pilot Book for the Scillies?

there is one that is for sale locally that is quite good. its published by the local bookstore - Gibsons of Scilly - see their website. I also just found from a quick google search one called like "A Yachtsman's Guide to the Scillies" by J. Norman Gooding which i think is a different book. There was an article in yachting monthly a few months ago that was pretty comprehensive.

Re: Best Pilot Book for the Scillies?

A few years ago, i got a free Cd including pilotage & tourism guide for following areas: Cornwall (including Scillies), Galicia, North Portugal & Pays de Retz. Maybe is it yet available?...

Imray nautical books and nautical charts from Imray, Admiralty charts and pilots for sailing navigation from Imray, Laurie, Norie & Wilson Ltd www.imray.com

Almost TOO comprehensive (and up to date)

Thanks for the suggestions - I must admit Imrays looks the most useful.
