Nope, it's Finland. South of Sottunga, east of Åland.

Re: Explain "Red Sector"

Do not confuse sector lights with buoyage. In the US "red right returning" is the way to remember to keep the red buoys on your right as your return to port. Don't try that in Europe!

Holy crap Knut... that is one confusing bit of lighting. Looks like a disco.

David,

Red sectors (in the US) do in fact show a hazard to navigation. However, what that hazard is a hazard to and when will depend on the vessel.

A small sailing vessel may, might, could, possibly, or maybe not, never, couldn't, impossible, sail in the red zone, or not.

That's why you have the chart, the light list, chart #1, and of course, your sextant

Re: Explain "Red Sector"

The coordinates for the area that was the subject of the initial question is 25 35.430' North & 080 05.810' West. What are your conclusions?

I am concluding that the sectors mark areas of caution for some reason, not necessarily areas that are prohibited or unnavigable.

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..
