Re: PNW - Cruising Guides.

The Evergreen Cruising Giudes, for both the East coast and West coast of Vancouver Island are all the charts one needs, from Olympia to Cape Caution.

The beauty of Pacific Coast Pilot's Gulf Islands guide is that it's free to download.

If someone could also share any raster or vector charts for BC we will be very gratefull.

We could share some materials aubou European water eg. North Sea, Baltic Sea, Meditarenian

Not much for free. Official charts in Canada are not copyright free. The charter company should supply them.

Online stuff - Northwest Boating Northwest Boat Travel On-Line and The Waggoner Cruising Guide, Annual Guide to Northwest Boating from Weatherly Press

Which charter companies are you considering?

Livia Cross posting this from my post on SSCA because it seemed like a useful item for PNWers.

This may be old news for some but new news for me.

You can download the current/tide tables for Canada in the nicely formatted .pdf version for free here.

I knew you could access individual days online for Canada but didn't know that I could download and print sections rather than buying the volumes. And I can keep them on my computer/Nook. Very nice.

If only I could download the entire volume at once instead of section by section. Still, this was useful for us.

Bilgewater Those are good additions Jack, thanks.

And from the same author as the "wind came from all ways" which you mentioned, I would like to suggest "Living with Weather" along the British Columbia Coast, the veil of chaos, By Owen Lange. (From Environment Canada)
Living with Weather Along the British Columbia Coast: The Veil of Chaos: Amazon.ca: Owen S. Lange: Books

jackdale Two absolute musts for weather:

Marine Weather Hazards Manual (essential for local weather hazards)

The Wind Came All Ways (more theoretical but great for linking local conditions to weather patterns)

Both from Environment Canada

One other:

Pacific Northwest Weather - Miller
