A new mapping tool for easy passage planning to marinas

The website ‘www.whichmarina.com‘ has a new, free mapping

tool.

It enables boaters to research marinas in any given area and then plan

their journey using the fully detailed marine charts.

The site is operated by the Yacht

Harbour Association (TYHA), a global trade association

established to support and develop the marina industry.

It’s teamed up

with leading electronic chart company, Navionics, to provide a detailed listing

of all its members on a full set of global nautical charts.

Whichmarina.com users can use

‘Geolocation’ to locate their computer or portable device and then display

details of local marinas with Gold Anchor ratings as well as using Google’s

‘Panoramio’ service to offer a full database of photos taken in the area.

TYHA General Manager, Gareth

Turnbull said: ‘The new mapping tool

makes it incredibly easy to plan a passage and locate suitable marinas, all

from within one site.

‘We’re

pleased to say we are offering this new service free from any charge or

subscription.’
