The Adlard Coles Nautical publishing company was founded by Championship yachtsman, Kaines Adlard Coles, in 1947. He also wrote many of the books including pilots, sailing narratives and the classic Heavy Weather Sailing, which is still published by the company (in an updated form) to this day. The company, which is now a part of Bloomsbury Publishing, publishes books for sailors, motorboaters and ‘landlubbers’ with an interest in the sea. Their list includes almanacs, cruising guides, pilot books and how-to instruction books, as well as large format photographic books, sailing narratives and sea-related reference, maritime history, humour and trivia books.
