Several months ago I queried on this forum about possible routes to Mackay from Noumea and was told to use the Hydrographer's Passage
. Looking at the charts
it appears that entrance via the Capricorn Channel is more appealing. Plus, that route
is at least 50 NM shorter.
So the question to anyone with personal experience: Which is better marked and the better route
to take -- Hydrographer's Passage
or Capricorn Channel?
