  From the rugged Washington coastline to the enviable shores of Southern California, West Coast beaches offer visitors a stunning array of beautiful choices for their next seaside getaway. While Pacific Coast beaches have markedly colder water than beaches along the Gulf Coast or Atlantic Coast, there is plenty to see and do.   The wind is likely to become a strong westerly, before possibly veering to north-west. Sailing via North Wales could be wet work, but life should be easier if we cross the Irish Sea and then race up the Irish coast on fairly flat water, with the low hopefully clearing away eastward before we face the North Channel.

  The oldest-surviving detailed map showing America was drawn by Turkish admiral Piri Reis in He used one of Christopher Columbus’s maps, now lost, for reference. Piri Reis’s map shows Brazil’s coastline to the left, and the coast of Spain and North Africa to the right. A narrative of four voyages to the South Sea, north and south Pacific Ocean, Chinese sea, Ethiopic and southern Atlantic Ocean, Indian and Antarctic Ocean: from the year to comprising critical surveys of coasts and islands, with sailing directions: and an account of some new and valuable discoveries, including the Massacre Islands, where thirteen of the author's crew were.

Both the east and west coasts of North America are bordered by oceans, but these regions couldn’t be more different. North America tours on the Pacific side are generally more adventurous since the coastline is much wilder. ADMIRALTY Sailing Directions (Pilots) provide essential information to support port entry and coastal navigation for all classes of ships at sea. Split across 76 volumes, coverage includes the world’s main commercial shipping routes and ports. Each volume of Sailing Directions offers.
