Almanac seeks grass roots info

Wiley’s recent launch of its free online almanac (see has proved popular with sailors all around the UK. To make sure that its information is as up to date as possible, Wiley is seeking to compile a network of ‘local heroes,’ or harbour representatives – sailors who know their own harbour well, have enquiring minds, ears to the ground and good working relationships with the harbour master.

In return, Wiley is offering complementary copies of two Wiley Nautical books each year.

To apply or find out more, email the editor Neville Featherstone (pictured) on with a summary of your nautical experience and qualifications and which harbour you would be happy to represent.
