About the Author

Rod Heikell has spent over 40 years cruising the coasts and islands of the Mediterranean. Having sailed his own as well as charter and delivery yachts across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean and to South East Asia, it is to the Mediterranean that he always returns. He is the acknowledged expert on Mediterranean sailing and his pilots are referred to by the cruising sailors who rely on them as `the bible'.
