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.
