In 1947 famous yachtsman K. Adlard Coles founded his own publishing company. He wrote many books, including pilots, narratives and the classic, world-famous Heavy Weather Sailing.
Today, Adlard Coles Nautical is an imprint of A & C Black Publishers (a division of Bloomsbury), who bought both Nautical Books and Adlard and merged the two in 1990. With over 200 books in print, Adlard Coles Nautical continues to provide sailors with practical, informative and up-to-date books.
Adlard Coles Nautical have an exciting publishing programme planned across all their lists during 2009 and beyond.
HSI have been invited to take an advisory role for selected future maritime publications.
