This publication is a small guide created for sailors of the Cape Cod Canal following the Canal's inception in 1914.

Then there is a chapter entitled "Government Aids to Navigation," which are quite specific and refer to certain routes entering and leaving the Canal. Finally, there are some general sailing directions followed by a conclusion. The guide contains nine photographs total, a fold-out map, and a corrected chart of the Cape Cod Canal toll listings.
