Yes but he passed it to the left both ways. As Jambo says its not on the Navionics chart, but it looks to me like he was the correct side of it on the way out; and on the way in passed between it and the island...

I would say definitely the wrong side coming in and you should have been on the same side i.e. East side of it coming in and coming out.
But chart doesn't seem to correspond to video???

Well I think that I was wrong going in and right coming out.
Just shows you how tricky some of these harbour entrances are.
Especially when you are going at "70knots"
Must take it easier next time and slow down.

No excuse That Man!

West cardinal triangles remind me of "West"ern women. East cardinal triangles, just the opposite!

Easiest way I find is looking at the shape of the triangles:

Egg = East
Wine glass = West

Interesting how confusing charts v. reality can be.

My latest Garmin charts show a south, not east cardinal, and a (vital?) couple of cables to the west.

I guess if in doubt follow the local actual buoyage and don't cut any corners.
