also Jeff Renner's paperback on weather for NW sailors is a must read for San Juans and south. If you really want to get into PNW weather read Cliff Maas' recent book. He's the UW person who runs the NOAA computer for the area. The Seattle Power Squadron runs a many week course on PNW weather that's very good but it's well underway by now. The point is that open ocean weather stuff just doesn't apply inshore here.

If you write a cruising blog (pacific northwest or elsewhere) check out our cruising blogs search. I'm trying to get fellow cruisers to add their position information into their blog posts to create an up to date dynamic cruising guide for those following in their wake.

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

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)

And this one was suggested over on the "Circumnavigating Vancouver Island" thread by SN'r Sassafrass, so I just thought I would copy it over to this thread for references purposes.

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.

Cruising guide of BC or Alaska waters.

Hello.
I live in Poland and with my friends we plan to charter boat in Vancouver and sail North to Alaska.

Maybe someone has any cruising guide in pdf format or could scan it for us.
I have to plan our trip and it's very dificult without cruising guide.

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

please help
with regards
Maciek

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?
