About the Author:

Beth Adams-Smith and her husband Richard have been cruising for the last three decades - voyages have included numerous trips up and down the eastern seaboard, including the ICW, where they advanced the art of achievable cruising cruise for a week or two, leave the boat, go home, come back a couple months later and continue on. Other cruising adventures have taken them to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Caribbean s Leeward and Windward Islands, Society Islands, Pacific Northwest, Whitsunday Islands, South America and numerous cruising grounds throughout the Mediterranean including Corsica, Greece, Croatia, Turkey. They are firm believers in going even if it means taking the office along and technology has made that possible. Along the way, they ve visited more than 2,500 marinas (most two, three or more times) on the east and west coasts of the US as cruisers, authors and editors. For more than twenty years Beth and Richard sailed Sabres and then, when the big No Name storm retired the last one, they bought a Leopard 40 catamaran that lives at the Moorings base in Tortola, BVI. They also cruise a Glacier Bay power cat, moored in Milton Harbor in Rye, NY. Beth is the primary writer/photographer/editor of the Atlantic Cruising Club s Guides to Marinas. For the Mid-Atlantic/ICW volume, she visited every marina many multiple times and also toured the surrounding region gathering all of the what s nearby info. She is also a digital media producer and has spearheaded the design and co-managed the development of Jerawyn s proprietary DatastractTM publishing technology, and oversees the attendant databases of both factual and editorial information including a library of over 20,000 nautical and travel images. As ACC s webmaster, she works closely with the development team to translate this information to an online environment. In addition to her work on the ACC Guides, Beth writes the HealthyBoat.com blog (holistic approaches to crew lifestyle and vessel management), writes articles on cruising, destinations, waterborne and water-oriented travel as the Wandering Mariner, and blogs on Travegans.com for travelers on a plant-based diet. She has also produced numerous documentaries, multiple media and database projects on holistic living, ecology, peacemaking, and complementary medicine, including Alt.HealthWatch the largest full text and image database on Integrative Medicine and Healtful Living. Beth holds a doctorate in Technology and Media and a masters in Health Education both from Columbia University, a bachelors in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University and is a Certified Health Education Specialist.

Review:

This extremely comprehensive guide takes all the guesswork out of choosing a marina. You ll know exactly what type of services and facilities they have and get an objective rating for them, including scenic beauty. It includes a DVD-ROM containing the same info plus a gazillion pictures and a versatile search function. Indispensable! --Latitudes & Attitudes The Cruising Lifestyle

The Guides offer encyclopedic detail about each marina, from depth and moorage fees to a description of the amenities. Additionally, they report on offerings at or near the marinas, including the availability of haulout and repair facilities, shopping, restaurants, medical services, and recreational opportunities. Finally, each marina is rated after a visit by club staff. The Guides come with a DVD version of the Marina Reports. Although the printed volumes are revised every two or three years, the club s website provides regular updates and an opportunity for members to comment. We are boater-biased, explains Richard Smith, publisher of the Guides. We are not ad driven, we accept no ads from marinas and there is no charge to be included. --PassageMaker - The Trawler & Ocean Motorboat Magazine

Best New Books: This hefty edition of Atlantic Cruising Club s Guides to ... Marinas should make heading ashore much less of a crapshoot. No fewer than 230 marinas [in each volume] are rated with respect to their onsite marina facilities (recreation, lodging and so on), boatyard services and scenic beauty. In addition to critical evaluations, each marina s write-up includes information such as its number of slips, power options, rates, geographic coordinates, pet policy and handicap access in short, everything anyone could possibly want to know. In an effort to ensure the objectivity of their ratings, reviewers paid for their own services and did not disclose the nature of their visits until after they made their assessments. (Not every marina earns terrific marks, either.) The book comes with a CD/DVD-ROM containing the same information (plus 1600 [-5000] photos) and a versatile search function. --Yachting Magazine
