Welcome to the official home of John Frankland’s Guernsey Pilotage on the web.  John’s  pilot books have proved extremely popular with both locals and visitors alike.   These booklets are easy to follow as well as being accurate in their detail.  All the passages described have been sailed in John’s own yacht, a Halberg Rassey 36 of 1.6 metres.  The passages range from the simplest trip to Herm to the more adventurous journey down the west coast of Guernsey. 

You will also find details of the various sailing services John provides.

Guernsey, Round the Island a complete and close-inshore circumnavigation of the Island of Guernsey.   A must when negotiating the north and west coasts.  Includes anchorages at Grande Havre, Cobo and Rocquaine Bay amongst others.


Herm, A Yachtsman’s Guide - A look at the simple and not so simple passages and marks for this popular destination.  Covers the east and west coast, the quaint harbour as well as the mysterious Humps.


Sark, Round the Island –Keeping close in around this picturesque island including the castle on Brecqhou and the old silver mine haven of Port Gorey – and much more. This really is ‘rock-hopping’ and tide cheating pilotage.
