Maps and Charts
eople think of the Charlottes as being straight north from Vancouver when they're actually almost exactly northwest - Haida Gwaii is as far west of Vancouver as Calgary is east of Vancouver - about 350 nautical miles. Our one-way route, Vancouver to SGang Gwaay (Anthony Island) via Larsen Harbour and Queen Charlotte City, is about 710 nm.

The chart graphics now have our actual route on them, green for outbound and red for coming home, with clickable links to large scale charts of anchorages and places we stopped - click on a date on a chart graphic to bring up the large scale screen shot.

These are links to most of the places we stopped. Later on in the trip, after the electronic charting needed checking, we put a circle with a .25nm radius around the boat so we could correlate with the radar.
