In the 1960s, Ralph Morris learned his way around Anglesey the hard way – in a day boat with one chart and a compass which one day chose to fail in fog. That’s not what prompted the decision to write this pilot though. It was the increasing scarcity of Henry Glazebrook’s Anglesey & North Wales Coast Pilot. A couple of members of the North West Venturers Yacht Club had written Cruising Notes for about half the coastline and after twenty years pottering around the Irish Sea it seemed like a good idea to complete the circuit and incorporate Henry’s pilot. In the early years, the Club published the pilot which was taken over by Imrays on 2003.
