Heading out this season? The RCCPF asks for your help.

RCCPF is asking for sailors to contribute information vital to cruising to keep the pilotage data up-to-date around the world.

By Tom & Susie Partridge - 08/05/2018

The RCC Pilotage Foundation (RCCPF) is a voluntary organisation which provides pilotage and passage planning information to sailors. The foundation publishes a large array of books and downloads covering worldwide cruising areas, including free downloads. The organisation is dependent on input from sailors helping to keep the information up to date.

The OCC would like to support these efforts by collating input from sailors participating in the Azores Pursuit Rally or sailing anywhere else in the world. Any information you can provide about any harbours, marinas or anchorages in which you stop will be gratefully received.

Listed below is the information that the RCC Pilotage Foundation would like to collect. Please complete any of the information you can in this form (one port per form) and email it to info@rccpf.org.uk. Or you can go online and post the information at www.rccpf.org.uk/Provide-Feedback.

Thank you for your support!
