Newfoundland and the Labrador Coast: 1909 (Classic Reprint)
This publication is a revision and extension of the second edition of the Sailing Directions of Newfoundland, and includes the latest available information from reliable sources. It cancels the previous editions, all supplements, and all Hydrographic Office notices to mariners which relate to Newfoundland and the Labrador coast up to and including number 18 of 1909.
Mariners are requested to notify the United States Hydrographic Office, directly or through one of its branch offices, of any new information obtained or of any errors or omissions discovered in the present edition.
The directions stated in this book are all reckoned from the true meridian. Definite directions, such as courses and bearings, are given to the nearest degree, from 0°: to 360°:, commencing at the North point, in accordance with the new system recently adopted by the United States Navy. The cardinal and intercardinal points of the compass, when employed, are used only as names to express general directions, such as the general trend of the land and the directions of winds and currents. Values of the variation of the compass may be obtained from the chart of the variation of the compass at the beginning of this book.
The directions of the winds refer to the points from which they blow: of the currents, the points toward which they set.
Distances are expressed in nautical miles, the mile being approximately 2,000 yards. The soundings are referred to mean low water, unless otherwise stated.
The latest information as to lights should always be sought in the List of Lights of the World.
