Welcome to the Norwegian coast

It's nothing extreme about this, the coast is rocky but well marked.
I have zoomed in on the B sector in the first map section

The paper charts here is mostly in 1:50000 scale, but I'm glad that we have good quality vector maps here.

The blue dotted lines in this chart is official routes, as you can see you must cross some red sectors..

Also note that we use IALA A system (as most of the world)

If you wold like to see the digital maps you can go to
Adaptive II - KystInfo
and make these selections and start zooming

I don't use this map for navigation, but this is the real stuff..
