Description

These popular cruising companions offer charts, tips and data that will enhance the enjoyment and safety of any voyage. The guides feature informative and charming hand-drawn shoreline plans of selected marinas and small boat anchorages, ranging from safe all-weather havens to secluded picnic spots and marine parks. Intended to complement official hydrographic charts, the Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides accurately pinpoint both popular and little-known highlights in BC and Pacific Northwest coastal waters that every sailor, power-boater or kayaker should know.

Written in the personal style of a boater's logbook, the accompanying text provides vital information about featured locations, plus notes on recreational activities for adults and children. Here you will find the best spots to anchor your boat, share a romantic sunset, enjoy a fine meal, pick blackberries in season--even locate a welcome hot shower or cappuccino!

Aerial photographs illustrate safe approaches to the destinations, while full-colour scenic photographs showcase the splendour of the Pacific Northwest 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.
