Cruising the Queensland Coast is an electronic cruising guide for yachts cruising the Queensland coast.
NOW ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINT VERSION!
The guide contains the most up-to-date information available about each of the 13 coasts, from the Gold Coast to the Cooktown Coast, including marinas, anchorages, passages, wind and wave averages, public pontoons and quick reference information and links for vital weather, search and rescue, notices to mariners and other vital information.
The e-guide contains more than 1,500 external links to information sources e.g. Notices to Mariners.
It is also integrated with Navionics, C-Map and Chart Plotters via links simply by clicking on the icons throughout the book and is continually updated.
None of these things is possible with printed books.
The guide features hundreds of chartlets and high-resolution aerial photos of anchorages to take the guesswork out of anchoring.
Each anchorage has information on depth, bottom, mobile reception, marine park zone and recommended wind directions and strengths.
The guide is also integrated with the Navionics and C-Map apps and allows easy export of GPX files for import to your chart plotter.
Anchorages and passages can be imported into Navionics and C-Map simply by clicking on the Navionics link and GPX link icons throughout the book.
The guide also provides an extensive reference of useful information for the Queensland Coast, such as skills and experience, recommended apps, charts and books, equipping the yacht for cruising, cruising logistics, climate and weather systems, marine hazards and the three major marine parks and their rules.
