Talk:  The East Coast Pilot has become the most popular pilot book for the creeks, harbours and rivers between Great Yarmouth and Ramsgate. It is currently edited by Garth Cooper and Dick Holness. Garth will let us know about the latest edition and give us an insight into the Ore and Alde, which are perhaps less visited than other East Coast rivers.
