Offshore charts

Offshore charts allow you to plan, prepare and follow an offshore navigation or a crossing. They are represented by folded or rolled paper charts at scales ranging from 1:1,150,000 to 1:750,000. Road charts cover a large area and do not contain detailed symbols. Offshore charts allow you to choose your routes and consider your options. They contain important traffic lights as well as distances between potential ports of call. The charts are in A1 format and can be folded to 15 x 30 cm. Discover our selection!

WHY SHOULD YOU PLAN AN OFFSHORE ROUTE?

Planning an offshore or deep-sea voyage is above all a way of anticipating hazards, in particular those linked to future weather conditions, and of forecasting the boat's route according to the direction of the wind and the swell: this is called 'routing'. The fact of studying and planning it for a 24 to 72 hour sail is called "passage planning". It also allows you to plan the shelters and ports of diversion and to prepare detailed maps of the approaches to these ports. The use of a paper chart, such as the NV-Pilot marine charts, has the advantage of allowing a global vision of the route during the preparation. Preparing for offshore sailing therefore requires knowing how to use your marine chart. To do this, our teams reveal all their advice for how to read your chart

FOR ASTRONOMICAL NAVIGATION

If you are interested in traditional navigation and in particular in astronomical navigation, the nV-Pilot charts are particularly well suited to transferring your points calculated from measurements on your sextant whether it is a point on the sun or a star point. As a reminder, the knowledge of the realization of a point with the sun is particularly useful when you do not have on board alternative electronic positioning means to the main means.
