Cruising Guides

As CCA members have ventured to remote places they have collected a substantial body of knowledge worth sharing.

·Canadian Maritimes Cruising Guides
For the Canadian Maritimes, there are four volumes that have been developed and regularly updated from over 55 years of cruising in these impressive regions. These are excellent resources in the best tradition of "User-Contributor" cruising guides. These volumes were originally developed in the 1950's and have been continually updated by CCA members and others  ever since.

·Norwegian Cruising Guide 
The original and most complete English language guide for mariners to the coasts of Norway, Svalbard (Spitsbergen), Bjornoya (Bear Island) and the southwest coast of Sweden. This e-book by CCA member John Harries and Phillis Nickel is available for download on-line.

·Guide to Cruising European Waters 
The Guide to Cruising European Waters takes a different approach, addressing practical and technical aspects to those heading for Europe. Different from a traditional cruising guide, this document by CCA member Walt Paul, dated 2006, remains tremendously helpful, especially to those who might be new to European cruising.
