The chart clippings below have been scanned from the Imray-Iolaire charts that we use for navigation in the Caribbean. They are excellent charts for anyone planning a cruise here. Each island chart also includes inserts of the most popular harbours in the area covered by the charts. The clippings have been placed on the homepage to give you a better idea of the location of places we talk about in the letters. I have included these clippings without permission from the authors and hope that 'they' will forgive my small trespass.
