The perfect chart for Friesland This chart is perfect when you are planning a trip on the Frisian Lakes.

This is a detailed chart with a scale of 1m/pixel, comparable with 1:3.600 on screen.
Navigating with waypoints The database accompanied with the chart has 2401 waypoints (divided into different sub groups). 145 harbours are included, with telephone number and website. Other waypoint groups include buoys, docks, water sport campings and gas stations.
The accurately placed buoys contain amongst others the so called 'slobbers'. These are marking buoys for bird resting areas which are in use from October 1st to May 1st. Outside of this period the buoys are replaced with yellow regatta buoys.
Also added to the chart are 'Marrekrite' landings. Included are docks, sheet piling, rig jetties and mooring buoys. Information includes approved camping sites (KAMP), the availability of trash cans (CONT) and if it possible to go ashore (WAL). These appendages can be found in the subname of a waypoint. (E.g.: "dock CONT WAL")
