Cruising Guide to Nova Scotia 2019 Edition
The Cruising Guide to the Nova Scotia Coast is endorsed by the Cruising Club of America and Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron. Now over fifty-three years of publication, it includes coverage of the Southwest New Brunswick, Inner Bay of Fundy, and Sable Island.
It remains the most inclusive guide for cruising the Canadian Maritimes today and new updates are available biennially. The detailed information is provided by a corps of "correspondents" - competent cruising men and women who contribute their collective knowledge. They are identified in every entry and you are invited to join them in the fun of discovery and sharing of information. Nova Scotia and its nearby waters are surely the last of the great cruising grounds. "Navigo ergo sum".
The Cruising Guide to the Nova Scotia Coast is the work of Charles W. Bartlett (1905-1984), a former Rear Commodore of the Cruising Club of America and a recipient of the Club's prestigious Nye Trophy, "for long and various services to the Cruising Club of America, especially the inauguration of the Cruising Club Guide to Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador."
"Charlie" (as he was known to all) suggested in 1950 that the Club co-sponsor a guide to the Nova Scotia coast with the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron in Halifax. Today his legacy is continued by Editor Jim Watson and Publisher Alexander (Sandy) Weld of Pilot Press, and a member of the Cruising Club of America.
