    Maybe the United States Coast Pilot has some information, try:

    Asunto: [NavList 7064] Virgin Rocks.

     

     

    This is the first of two requests for help.

     

    I've noticed, in Admiraly "Ocean passages for the World", 1973 , a mention

    of "Virgin Rocks" in  a routeing chart for approaches to East Coast ports

    facing page 73, marked by a "+" symbol.. Virgin Rocks are shown at roughly

    46º 30' N, 51ºW, about 80 miles East of Cape Race..

     

    I don't have any detailed information about the waters East of Newfoundland,

    and wonder if any Navlist member can help. All I am asking is whether Virgin

    Rocks presents a hazard to surface vessels, such that craft of say 15 ft.

    draught might need to keep clear of it (or rough water around it), and

    perhaps whether icebergs might have a tendency to ground around it in the

    early part of the season (May).

     

    George.
