Transatlantic Safety Manual

Hi All,

I have had so many requests for a copy of the manual (very flattered) I have been unable to respond but I will. Right now too busy hosting guests in the Caribbean (Someone's got to do it!)

Best wishes and fair winds

There is the potential to beat Cornell's book but not the BA136.

How about doing it via the Wiki?


Someone said that they say in an ARC manual:

"...Having left Las Palmas turn right and set your autopilot to 255. Upon arrival at Rodney Bay call the Marina for tow-in. Please remember to press the 'Standby' button of your autopilots when under tow ..."


I would love to read on a non-stop from West Indies to Gibraltar, S of the Azores.

Which route are you interested in?
