• Cruising Cape Breton App—The Digital Cruising Guide that keeps up-to-date
The CCB App is a version of the Cruising Cape Breton website that runs in a browser on a laptop or tablet. It gives access to all the charts, tide tables, marina and weather forecast information, etc — no Internet required. No need to download what might be needed before setting off on a cruise. It takes less than 35 MB on a laptop, tablet, or flash drive. The latest edition is usually uploaded around the beginning of each month. The Website and App undergo frequent unannounced changes to enhance user experience. So, always grab the latest version! Important note!
App Option 1 — Self-extracting zip-file (Windows users only)
Depending on your browser, you may be able to run this directly to install it; otherwise you will be required to save the file and then run it directly from the web browser's download. Follow the instructions. This operation will create a directory 'CruiseCB' on your C-drive where the files are stored and provides a shortcut on your desktop: 'CruiseCB'.
NOTE: When using this option there is no need to delete an older version when updating—it simply replaces it.
