Description - Reeds Marine Distance Tables 14th edition by Miranda Delmar-Morgan
Reeds Marine Distance Tables are the perfect ready-reckoner for captains, navigators and owners of merchant and cruise ships large and small wanting a quick and accurate distance reference between all the regularly used commercial ports around the world. They are also of increasing value to the superyacht fleet.
The book is divided into key 'market areas', and includes a pull-out map for area identification and easy see-at-a-glance port reference. Traffic Separation Schemes are calculated into the tables and the distance to any port not included can easily be determined by making an approximation from the next closest port. Useful tables of major 'turning points' around the world (such as Cape Finisterre, Cape Horn and the Dover Straits), time zones, and time and speed conversion tables are also included.
Improvements for this edition include: greater linkage between the eastern and western ports of the Indian Ocean; expansion of the Caribbean Sea; further extension of Gibraltar for ease of use within the tables; transatlantic distance table now provides better linkage with southern Atlantic ports. Emerging ports around the world have also been added to reflect modern trends and developments in shipping movements and expansions.
Reeds Marine Distance Tables are an invaluable reference for ship owners, operators, brokers, navigators and superyacht skippers. Using this one reference, anyone can calculate the shortest or most economical distances between all the major ports in the world.
