I'm planning a cross-Atlantic trip for July. Departure: Charleston, SC. Destination
: West coast
. I might also want to put in at St. John's, Newfoundland
I've been using various sources to help me select which charts
and reference materials I'll need, but there's so many of them. Pilots, Sailing Directions, Light Lists, Tide Tables, Weather
Broadcasts, hundreds of Charts
Is there a resource which will help me narrow it down? I don't want to have to purchase
all the charts of the U.S. East coast
, but would like to have them just in case I need to put in somewhere unexpectedly. But that's a lot of charts and a lot of money
I want light lists and Tide Tables and some general advice as well, not to mention charts.
Any advice to help me sort all this out?
