New edition of NOAA’s US Coast Pilot available


The first volume of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration U.S. Coast Pilot (Vol. 1, 48th edition, 2018) is now available. It includes the Navigation Rules and the amalgamated International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea.

The U.S. Coast Pilot is issued in nine volumes that contain supplemental information important to navigators of coastal and intra-coastal waters and the Great Lakes but difficult to portray on a nautical chart. The newest edition covers the Atlantic Coast from Eastport, Maine, to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

To access the newest edition, go to the U.S. Coast Pilot website and select the New England region on the interactive map. The publication dates of the other volumes are available by selecting each geographic region on the map. U.S. Coast Pilot publications include Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service regulations.

All U.S. Coast Pilot books are free to download from NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey website, however, NOAA warns that incomplete and otherwise inaccurate reproductions of U.S. Coast Pilot are being sold on the commercial market.
