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 and 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), time zones, and time and speed conversion tables are also included. New for this edition is a useful Transatlantic distance table which has improved the linkage between the western north Atlantic and the Mediterranean and between South America and Africa. Additionally, coverage of Chinese ports continues to be extended in light of their growth and importance, and both China’s and India’s busiest ports are featured.
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.
