Almanac bargains

Don’t go to the Southampton Boat Show and end up lugging a cut price almanac around all day. That is the advice of SYH chandlery manager Richard Gadd.

He says the 2012 Reeds Nautical Almanac (RRP £39.95) is for sale for £31.95 in the SYH chandlery, and the 2012 Cruising Association Almanac, published by Imray, (RRP £32) is on sale for £24.95.

Richard wants berth-holders to understand that online chandleries are not always as competitive as they might seem. "Before you spend, come and talk to us," he said. "If you have seen it cheaper somewhere else, come and ask. We are always happy to look into it.

"And if you buy it from us, you don’t have to pay carriage charges, and if there is a problem, we will deal with it!"
