Not strictly a cruising guide.
Sailing Directions from the Canadian Hydrographic Service
It has some information lacking in a cruising guide
- Weather conditions throughout the year
- Traffic Zones and VHF frequencies, etc.,
As an official publication, none of its information is prefaced with "not for navigation."
When teaching, I refer my students to Sailing Direction before a cruising guide, and compare the advice.
