Brian Willson of CSIG announced today that he has released the Beta 3 version of the CSIG charts.

The B3 version includes all the waters surveyed to date on the Shannon and Erne waterways, from Limerick to Belleek.  They are now available to our Beta Test Team.

Many people have contributed to the project over the years, surveying, mapping and donating information, time, effort and money.  To quote Brian:

“I could not have done this alone, and whilst there are many people whom I need to thank I would especially like to mention:

Fergal Kerney for his surveying on Lough Derg

Pat McManus for his surveying and mapping of Lough Ree

Les Saunders for his mapping of the SEW and providing navigation mark details

Colman Byrne for his surveying and IOS expertise

Peter Maxwell and Robert Navan for their surveying on the Erne and Lough Neagh

and all the Beta Testers who have given feedback.”

Plans are afoot for a Surveyors Course, most likely in April.  If you would like to contribute to this project, do contact us at
