The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide is published by the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania to enable passage planning and to provide details of possible shelter usable by small craft cruising on the Tasmanian coast.
The information is provided as a guide only and is intended for use in conjunction with the Australian Pilot, Australian charts and other cruising publications.
The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide has 7 sections and a detailed index that cover the Tasmanian coast starting from Hobart and traversing the coast in an anticlockwise direction – in the same direction as the Van Diemens Land Circumnavigation cruises.
Mud-maps of most anchorages and cruising areas are included adjacent to their descriptions.
