Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 Excerpt: ...it is seen it will be sufficient to steer for its eastern slope, which terminates in the inlet. It frequently happeus that a vessel coming towards the port with a north-west wind will find a southerly wind at the entrance. If there is any sea at the time, and the wind blows strong out, which is generally the case in winter, care should be taken to avoid missing stays in the vicinity of the Carabela bank, as there is no room to anchor, and the flood tide sets directly on to the bank, which nearly always breaks when there is any sea.

The entrance is easy with north-east winds, as they do not send in so much sea. If from the westward, the Farallones de San Cipriau should be made, and from thence, if autumn, or winter, and the wind inclines to the southwest, it will be prudent to run along the coast at 3 or 4 miles distance, for in this season a south-west wind outside draws to the southward in proportion as the vessel advances across the gulf of Foz, which is 19 miles in breadth between Tapia islet and Burela point, and 5 miles deep. When abreast San Miguel point, near the coast to 2 miles if the water be smooth, or 3 miles should there be any sea, until clear of the Longas off Piiieira point, when endeavour to make out the chapel of Santa Cruz, a white quadrangular building on the eastern slope of monte Mondigo, about W.S.W. from the mouth of the inlet. Keep this chapel in sight above the cliffs until abreast Pancha islet, when steer into the inlet towards the middle of Arnao bay, until Cabancla point, the most projecting point south of the town of Rivadeo, is ...
