Compare these two maps of the same area. Notice that north points to the right, not up.

Your ships will land first at Cape Henry, then head up the large open inlet on the right. It will later be called Chesapeake Bay.

Once you have landed the Instructions from the Virginia Company will be opened. They will name your leaders and will give guidance about where to land and how to establish your colony.

This large waterway is where the colonists plan to sail.
