    George:
    
    You need NGIA Sailing Directions Publication 146 (2008) Newfoundland,
    Labrador & Hudson Bay.  You can view or download a pdf at
    
    http://www.nga.mil/portal/site/maritime/
    
    Using a recent version of Acrobat (I used Acrobat 8 professional) you can do
    a search in the search box and find everything known about Virgin Rocks.
    Otherwise the good stuff is on page 100. Not a good place to be.
