Digital versions of pilot books

Hello all,

I was just wondering if digital versions of pilot books exist somewhere and if so who stores / sells them?

Last sailing trip I went on the books I ended up storing were pretty darn heavy. I'd like to have them all on my iPad this time if that's possible.

Regards,
Simon

Re: Digital versions of pilot books

I haven't seen digital versions of any of the many commercial "Sailing Guides", but the Admiralty Sailing Directions(Pilots) are.

Re: Digital versions of pilot books

A little uncertain what you are looking for in your request. Are you looking for "sailing guides" and if so, which area? Or are you looking for pilot charts or something else?

Yep, it is a US military site that doesn't respond to the https request correctly. It is fine to use.

For the U.S, the Coast Pilot books are available in softcopy from NOAA.
