Corfu, Levkas, Cephalonia, Zakinthos and the coast to Finakounda
Like its companions West Aegean and East Aegean, Ionian contains detailed information on many of the smaller harbours and anchorages which cannot be covered as comprehensively in Rod Heikell's major guide, Greek Waters Pilot. These handy cruising companions are ideal for charterers and flotilla sailors who are in the area for a short time but to make the best of it need all the essential background information on places to visit, history, food and travelling in Greece at their fingertips. Cruisers on their own yachts will also find much of interest and additional pilotage when cruising in the area.
Ionian covers the coasts and islands south from Corfu and has been extended for this seventh edition southwards to Finakounda and eastwards to Mesolongion. It has been fully revised with new and updated plans and photographs and major changes have been made to the layout to improve its use as a practical guide. Ionian is essential on-board reference.
Rod Heikell sets the standards when it comes to blending sailing directions with good travel writing, and in this companion his writing once again does justice to an area that ranks as one of the Mediterraneans most beautiful cruising grounds.
Heikell's style is easy to digest and gives pleasure in the details of the history, geography and social circumstances of the places described as well as the essential sailing information. The Little Ship
This book, as well as being a practical manual on Ionian cruising, seems to have absorbed much of the author's personal feelings regarding the charm which draws him back to it, and any reader who has had a whiff of the magic spell of the Greek islands will sense this, and inevitably renew the resolve to return and experience it once again in greater measure. Nautical Magazine
