A new 20-page, full colour guide to moorings along the German Rhine has also been launched.
The guide, which covers about 700 km of the river starting from the border close to the Swiss city of Basel downstream to Nijmegen just inside the Dutch border, has been compiled by EIWS members Dr Roger Edgar, who has cruised the area extensively, with major input from fellow member Rob Thomas, who lives in Germany on the Rhine.
As well as a helpful introduction to the hazards and highlights of cruising this beautiful river, the guide includes a detailed list of mooring points, fuel stations, ports and harbours along the river and a list of useful websites and sources of commercially published information.
Details of all moorings are also included on CAptain’s Mate, the CA’s proprietary app, enabling them to be regularly updated by CA members posting online reports using the app.
The individual waterways guides and the German Rhine guide are each priced at £5.95 plus p&p.The Cruising the Inland Waterways of France and Belgium guide is £25 plus p&p, Through the Netherlands by the Standing Mast Routes is £10 plus p&p.
