CRUISE CAPE BRETON—The Yachters' Guide to the Bras d'Or Lakes, published such information in book–format. It's long out of print and existing, dog–eared editions contain much misinformation. Chart and illustration reproduction in later editions was of poor quality and several charts were omitted.
Much has changed since the original Cruise Cape Breton book was first published in 1974 and last revised in 1992—not just around the island, but also in the way we navigate and communicate. With GPS and state–of–the–art electronics, we navigate with a precision that was undreamt of then. Change is continuous, making guide books out–of–date before they're ever published.
Cruising‑Cape‑Breton.info is our solution to this problem. You can see from the "What's New?" column (right) that we strive constantly to keep abreast of changes and to improve the accuracy, utility, and presentation of our information.
