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 whilst 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), Transatlantic distances, world time zones, and time and speed conversion tables are also included. As well as incorporating general updates and improvements, this edition has been expanded to include distances both within and through the North West Passage, providing high latitude linkage between major North Pacific ports such as Vancouver, Vladivostok and Shanghai and those in the North Atlantic, Norwegian and Barents Seas, such as Reykjavik, Narvik and Archangel. 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.
