This cruising guide, Volume 2 in the Dreamspeaker series, features informative, hand-drawn shoreline plans of more than 100 selected marinas and small boat anchorages. Numerous color photographs show the area in all its splendor.

Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones are experienced offshore and inshore sailors who voyaged from Southampton, England in 1985 on their first adventure across the Atlantic Ocean. Over the last 22 years they have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing their travels, and exclusively along the beautifully rugged coastline and islands of the Pacific Northwest. To date they have produced 6 colorful, information-packed Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides and see themselves as passionate ambassadors of the area s unspoiled cruising waters, its coastal communities and local enterprises. Through their writing, charting and photography they endeavor to promote safe and enjoyable boating while profiling the uniqueness of coastal life. Anne and Laurence are also regular contributors to local and international boating magazines. They live in Vancouver s West End and keep their 36-foot sailboat Dreamspeaker and faithful dinghy, Tink, close by.Review:
For Voyage of the Dreamspeaker
"There's a jolly practicality to the text that makes this handsome book a good gift for a sailor, if not an armchair traveller."
-The Globe and Mail
"Nothing if not hip-nautical... This is a book no West Coast sailor worth his salt - or even a land-lubber who wants to explore the area - should be without."
"Anne is no only a crack sailor, she accentuate the positive in every encounter, whether with natural beauty, natural folks, or natural disaster."
For The Broughtons
"These sailors cum authors don't just ply the water where they travel, they connect with the people and the communities. That intimacy is reflected in this popular series of cruising guides...essential for local and visiting boaters."
-Teresa Bird, North Island Gazette
"The completeness of The Broughtons is truly exhaustive...A valuable addition to the library of any serious cruiser"
-Robert Buller, Pacific Yachting
