    Virgin Rocks.
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2009 Jan 15, 11:41 -0000

    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 
    46� 30' N, 51�W, 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).
