The image below is a screenshot taken from the i-Boating website of interactive on-line charts. It shows navigation marks, but use for navigation is not recommended. Note that i-Boating uses a scan of Chart 1550 that was last updated in 2011, so any changes since then are not reflected therein. The Navionics charts referenced below are electronic charts that get updated regularly, and thus are a better reference. For those that want a paper chart, they can print and plasticize this 11″ x 17″ pdf for Lac Deschênes.
Race Marks Table:
The table below contains the GPS coordinates of all our race marks used for Interclub racing. This information may be downloaded as an Excel file. As of June 2022, all race marks are present. The actual position of marks will vary slightly from year to year from these target locations. Thanks to Tony Latus for leading the effort of refurbishing and updating our Race Marks, as a joint BYC/NSC/CVGR effort.
