New Waterway Guide editions are released

Waterway Guide released the 2010 editions of its Northern and Great Lakes cruising guides.

The two editions join Waterway Guide's annually updated collection of six guides, including a new 2010 Bahamas Guide introduced in June, as well as the 2010 Chesapeake and Atlantic ICW Guides.

"We're very pleased to announce the introduction of our 2010 Northern and Great Lakes Waterway Guides just in time for the busy spring and summer cruising season," said Jack Dozier, Waterway Guide's publisher, in a statement.

"With the addition of the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic ICW, Bahamas and Southern 2010 editions, we offer the most up-to-date and accurate cruising guides available for both northbound and southbound cruisers."

Retailing for $39.95, the guides are available from the Waterway Guide Web site and from marine stores and booksellers up and down the Atlantic Coast.
