Book Description
Anchors away and hoist the main sail. The Notre Dame Bay Cruising Guide can help you navigate the breathtaking inlets and islands of one of Newfoundland's largest bays, known affectionately by some as the "Caribbean of the North."

Part sailing guide and part tourism brochure, this useful book marries crisp full-colour aerial photos of Notre Dame Bay's many harbours and coves, with corresponding sections from the British Admiralty Charts. It also presents interesting historical tidbits that are sure to inspire those navigators in search of both beauty and lore. Members of the Flat Earth Society, for example, will delight in being able to sail to the farthest reaches of the planet by helming alee for Fogo Island. Similarly, aviation enthusiasts will likely set a direct course for Botwood, home of the first scheduled transatlantic passenger flight.

Besides detailing the many and varied things to do on this scenic coast (which stretches from Cape St. John in the northwest to Cape Freels in the southeast), this well-designed book includes navigational advice such as the safest approach to a mooring, and other vital tips such as channel depth and width, prevailing winds and bottom quality (shale or mud, for example). The guide also offers practical reminders for sailors visiting from afar, including information on passports, medical services and the HST rebate.

While not meant to be a comprehensive navigational resource, this guide is a smart compilation of handy information to let you cruise through some of the most pristine waters in the world, and have a whale of a time doing so. - Gay Decker
