The Challenge Of Norwegian Place Names

by phyllis July 29, 2015

My special project for the Norwegian Cruising Guide this year is to make sure that the place names in the Guide as closely match those on the Norwegian charts as possible. In previous editions, I used Den Norske Los, the Norwegian Pilot, as the standard for choosing harbour/anchorage place names. However, Kartverket’s decision to stop publishing in […]

Marine Chart Links Broken

by phyllis June 15, 2015

We just received an email from a reader who informed us that, in the several weeks since I last tested it, Statens Kartverk has updated their online chart software. Which is fine if you don’t have 1000 links (the lat/long link for each harbour/anchorage) to said online charts that now don’t work. Which means I know […]

Integrating Updates Into The Guide

by phyllis June 14, 2015

Hopefully you’ve all downloaded your copy of the updates to the Norwegian Cruising Guide, 7th Edition, which we made available last month. It’s a huge document and I realize that it’s onerous to try and integrate information between the Guide and the Updates. Based on this frustration, a few readers have written to ask if it’s possible […]

Norwegian Cruising Guide Editors Never Sleep

by phyllis April 1, 2015

It’s been an especially harsh winter here in Nova Scotia. We were supposed to launch our boat today, April 1st, but the two meters of snow on the ground and the thick ice clogging our inlet and extending well out into Mahone Bay have put paid to that. It now looks like we won’t get in […]

A Review of The Norwegian Cruising Guide

by phyllis June 5, 2014

It’s always good to receive feedback (both positive and constructive) from readers of the Norwegian Cruising Guide. And it’s even better when that feedback is published by someone other than ourselves! We’d like to share the following review Howard Steen wrote for the Cruising Association (reprinted below with permission from the Cruising Association):

Heartbleed Bug–NCG is Safe

by phyllis April 13, 2014

What’s Next For the NCG?

by phyllis October 3, 2013

Another sailing season is drawing to a close in Norway, obviously a busy one from all the updates we received. Thank you to all who sent in your updates/corrections/new harbours. We really appreciate the input. If anybody else out there has information for the Guide, this is the time to send it in. With a […]
