This guide is more than a pilot book although that remains the prime object. David and Lisa 's studies of all aspects of the Black Sea provide a fascinating backdrop to the area from ancient history to modern times as well as discussing current environmental concerns and pressures. Based on a cruise in their 37 ft cutter 'Gyatso' to the Black Sea in 2010 it incorporates and builds on material gathered earlier by Dorren and Archie Annan for their book Cruise the Black SeaSECURITY WARNINGSince the publication of this guide the security situation in the area has unfortunately deteriorated and any yachtsmen contemplating cruising in this area should refer to the appropriate sections of the foreign travel advice from https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice (See link below)
