Description

Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, whose classic guides on southern waters have made them the coast's favourite cruising writers, weigh in on the fabulous cruising territory of the Broughton Archipelago. Volume 5 includes all of the familiar features that make the Dreamspeaker series so popular. Numerous charts and aerial photos clearly delineate the safest routes north into Queen Charlotte Strait and the myriad islands surrounding it. Laurence's whimsical hand-drawn maps expose the dangers and attractions of key anchorages among the maze-like passages with matchless clarity. Anne's buoyant commentary draws on her own exhaustive research to evoke the mythic past of this overpowering "Kwakiutl Country" and provide a knowing guide to hidden treasures and not-to-be missed attractions. Laurence's fine scenic photography adds the crowning touch to one of the most handsome marine guides yet seen on this coast.

About the authors

Accomplished boating guide authors and sailors, Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones have produced seven Dreamspeaker Guides that provide highly detailed and comprehensive coverage of the Pacific Northwest - from Olympia, Washington State to the northern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Their first adventure began when they left England and crossed the Atlantic Ocean aboard their 36-foot sailboat Dreamspeaker. Sailing to the East Coast of the United States via the Caribbean, they made Vancouver, Canada their home in 1988.

 

The first Dreamspeaker Guide was published in 1998. With Laurence's architectural background and love of drawing, design and geography and Anne's flair for descriptive and entertaining letters to family and friends, they combined their talents to create a successful series of guides that promote a safe and fun boating lifestyle.

Over the last 26 years Anne and Laurence have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing the rugged and beautiful coastline and islands of the Pacific Northwest. Their Dreamspeaker Guides are filled with Laurence's meticulous hand-drawn charts, and vital navigational and local information that guide boaters safely into busy harbors, marinas and sheltered anchorages.
