Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?
I would also recommend the Canadian Hydrographic Service Sailing Directions.
I am not sure what route you intend after Campbell River, but Seymour Narrows is my least favourite as I like to spend as little times as possible in Johnstone Strait. I like both the Yucultas and Octopus Islands route, although the latter does result in more time in the Strait. I prefer to take Whirlpool Rapids to avoid Race Passage.
