The Shank. A Rutter for anchorages in Tasmania’s Southwest.
“Ian Johnston has been navigating the oceans for more years than he’ll care to admit. He has a penchant for the wild places where few people go, and in The Shank he describes some of the wildest. It’s a rutter that you’ll want to have with you, if you and your crew choose to go where the wild things are.” – Paul Cullen, Director, Australian Antarctic Festival
