Cruising Guide to Newfoundland,
Cruising Guide to The Labrador,
and the
Cruising Guide to the Gulf of St. Lawrence

Published by Members of
The Cruising Club of America

These guides are published by Pilot Press as aids for those who seek the challengers, adventures and rewards of sailing in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled cruising grounds of North America, and who appreciate a few tips from those who have been there before. The guides are contributor driven, thus the information has been collected by the yachtsmen who have been there. It's what they found.

The early explorers relied on each other. Today we rely on each other's contributions to explore and enjoy this phenomenal country. Hopefully those who use these guides receive as much assistance from them as others before you, and that you, like them, will contribute meaningful information for future users. Without your continued updating of information, these publications - the longest continuously published cruising guide for Nova Scotia and the only sailing guides to Newfoundland or Labrador - would become useless. New editions of these guides are published every 4-5 years.

Temporary Importation and Retention of Foreign Vessels in Canada by Non-residents: As of the Fall of 2013, the Canadian Government begun to enforce limits on how long and under what conditions one may keep a non-Canadian boat in Canada. A visiting foreign yacht is welcome in Canada for one sailing season. Beyond that, one may winter-over one’s boat in a Canadian storage and repair facility, but must plan that the total stay cannot exceed twelve months. This is a significant change for those who have enjoyed Canadian hospitality and services over multiple seasons.

One must plan accordingly. Go to http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel-voyage/fv-be/menu-eng.html for a full discussion.
