Asia Yacht Press (AYP) has done it again! After a long period of Covid-delayed gestation, AYP are delighted to announce the arrival of a second edition of ‘Cruising Hong Kong’. “We sold out of the first edition, and were still getting enquiries” said Guy Nowell, “so we did it all over again!”

Cruising Hong Kong is a lavishly illustrated voyage around the coastlines, bays, anchorages, and even water-accessible restaurants of Hong Kong. It’s v1.2, not vNew. It’s not a pilot – it doesn’t claim to be that detailed or comprehensive (although there have been suggestions…). It’s an informative cruise around the truly beautiful Hong Kong coastline, with a smidgen of history and some highly scenic geology thrown in, as well as information on charts, safety, local rules and regulations, speed limits, fuel docks and a great deal more.

"Cruising Hong Kong will fill a gaping hole in any Hong Kong boating enthusiast’s bookshelf. Whilst it is true that this is a visual treat (Guy Nowell is not only a yachting photographer of some renown, but also a keen sailor with an intimate knowledge of Hong Kong's waters), this is much more than a coffee table publication. The team at Asia Yacht Press must be congratulated for producing a work that both inspires and informs. The book is packed with practical information and as such is a "must have" for anyone remotely interested in boating in Hong Kong." (Roger Eastham, former Marine Manager, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club).

In a pocket-sized space, Hong Kong offers some of the most wonderful cruising grounds imaginable, and you’re never far from anywhere, even if it feels like it. The city is always just around the corner, but easily forgotten. This is truly ‘world-class water’. If you know, and have forgotten, you need Cruising Hong Kong. If you are new here and want to explore, you need Cruising Hong Kong. And if you have never cruised Hong Kong, you are missing out. Pay a visit: we have the guide.

A must for every boat’s saloon, bridge, or wheelhouse: HK$460 (US$59) plus p+p.
