56 Comments on “Links And Other Sailing Blogs”

  1. We’ve just completed our fifth season and 30,000 miles from Ventura CA to Finike Turkey. We’ve got our first child on the way (due June 2009), so we’ll wait and see how that effects our plans..

    We’ve just recently announced BlurbBits, a Free way to Blog and Map/share photos, even from the middle of the ocean (via email).

    If anyone is looking for a great boat Billabong is for Sale.

  2. A life-long sailing and climbing enthusiast, I created my blog to provide a place for adventurous small boat sailors to their share experiences around the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva Peninsula. My experiences became a book, “Circumnavigating the Delmarva Peninsula – a Guide for the Shoal Draft Sailor”. This book is a living text, with new material added, existing material revised, and reader comments incorporated in order to build and maintain the definitive guide for would-be Delmarva circumnavigators. These revisions are posted here. So go out and explore the waters of the Delmarva coast, experience the quiet beauty of the Virginia Coast Reserve, and report back with your observations, notes, and thoughts. The big guides treat this trip as a passage to blast through, not an experience to be savored, not visiting wild areas and small harbors. Go see what they’re missing!

  3. Full time live aboard family of 4 – mom/dad/4 year old boy/guinea pig on a St. Francis 44 catamaran in the Chesapeake Bay. Going on our 11th year full time aboard, we cruised once PK (pre-kid) and we’re readying to do it all again in 2 years.

  4. Jim & Katie (Californians living in Europe) bought a Hallberg-Rassy 40 in 2006 in Holland. From Holland we sailed the northern coasts of France and Spain, down Portugal to the Med. After a season in the Western Med we crossed the Atlantic (our first long passage) and are now in the Caribbean.

  5. These are the voyages of the Mariner 40 ketch “Sea Trek” on her 17 years of cruising the Gulf Coast and East Coast of the United States and the Western Caribbean. Lots of information on cruising preparations, equipment and cost breakdowns and some extra goodies not found on most sailing blogs.

  6. Sailing and boat keeping are the pillars of my life at the mo. I enjoy writing about the cruises, and actually quite enjoy reading them (odd or what).

    Hope the stories will survive when I am too old to sail.

  7. After eighteen years of living aboard and short trips we set off on an open-ended cruise in May 2007 leaving Hawaii, for some strange reason, headed North to the Pacific Northwest.

  8. Edith and I went to sea in 2004 on our classic, 1965 sixty foot Philip Rhodes…. Our route took us from Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Cyprus, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen, Oman, India, Maldives to Thailand and Malaysia in which region we are now. Ckeck out the stories, the website and all of our adventures.

  9. Great site – I found it at Cruiser’s Forum.

    Our blog is called Sail Beausoleil. Beausoleil is a newly refit 1979 Formosa 51 aft cockpit ketch on which we’re now cruising full time. Even though our home port is Marblehead, MA, the name pays homage to my Cajun heritage: it was named after Joseph “Beausoleil” Broussard, who led the Acadian exodus from Nova Scotia to south Louisiana in the 1750’s. He’s the Original Cajun!

  10. This is perhaps more of a website than blog. The emphasis is an interactive map showing images of the different Abaco Cays of the Bahamas from my last few cruises there. My intent is to give other cruisers a feel for what the various islands have to offer. Other pages include weather, forecasts, crossing information, links to entry requirements and other information relevant those departing the U.S. for the Bahamas.

  11. German reading people can follow our website of our Hanse 470 from the birth 2007 to the present. There are lots of pictures, hints for fellow owners and multimedia stuff.

  12. the website, http://www.faithofholland.com, is both a site dedicated to chronicling our family’s four and a half year journey around the world, and a blog where I use the perspective gained from that journey to look at the world around us.
    Feel free to visit. Gregg A Granger

  13. The voyages and adventures of Elisabeth and Rod. We set sail in Sept. 2009 from San Francisco aboard our beloved Swan 41. Our plan is to winter in Mexico and head west in spring 2010. Germany is a destination. Come join us to see where we actually end up! Hey, it’s cruising, so it’s loose!

  14. The tales of a liveaboard couple and their two dogs, starting out as rookie sailors in 2007, finding ways of making ends meet and stay sane on a 44 foot ketch. Started in the Med, still in the Med, will we ever move on?

  15. Many years of cruising to and around the Med on a Kelsall trimaran. Good luck Jamie on your Vasco de Gama rally.
    I’m looking forward to the updates.

  16. Malua was built in Australia and sailed through the Pacific. She is currently in Greece after three years cruising from Spain to Turkey. From Marmaris to Istanbul and then the Halkadiki. During 2009 through Greece to Venice via east coast Italy, Croatia and Montenegro.
    See also http://www.malua.com.au for the boats features, how it was built, equipment and the Pacific cruise.

  17. This blog is for all those guys n girls like me who dream of giving it all up and sailing away to be a digital nomad. This is the journey from the very beginning and completely uncensored please come along for the ride

  18. Exit Only is our Privilege 39 catamaran that we sailed for eleven years around the world. We survived the Global Tsunami in Thailand and navigated through Pirate Alley and up the Red Sea. We have sea stories, podcasts, pictures, videos, and a professionally produced DVD of the adventures of Exit Only. You can learn more about Exit Only at http://www.offshorecatamaran.com with lots of pictures.

  19. Circumnavigating Australia, Solo.
    Sailing through the Kimberley of Western Australia, attacked by crocodiles & humpbacks from serendipity to shipwrecked and then the next yacht.

  20. Tall tales and other thoughts from storyteller, sailor and nomad Dennison Berwick. “Kuan Yin” is my 32-foot go-anywhere home. After completely refitting the boat, I’m heading to northern Labrador this summer (2010) to retrace the 1811 voyage of an Inuit (Eskimo) sea captain, his family and two missionaries to sailed to Ungava Bay and back to meet Inuit who’d never before seen Europeans.

  21. We bought “Skylark”, our 1968 Cal 34, with the intentions of sailing her down to Jacksonville, FL where we will be based to start a life cruising the Keys, Bahamas and eventually beyond. Sailing Adventures on a Cal 34, shows our progress, where we are and whats next on the agenda.

  22. We are going around the world with our Hallberg Rassy 352, for 2 years with start in October this year. Setting off from our hometown Barcelona.

  23. We moved onto our Island Packet Cat in June of 2010. With us is our Pit Bull puppy and 14 year old cat.
    It’s been a crazy ride so far and if I couldn’t blog I’d need therapy for sure!
    This blog is a great idea, thanks.

    1. Hi,

      I’m a teacher and will bereading a book to my class about a boy who goes on a round the world yachting adventure with his parents. I’m trying to find someone who is currently doing something similar for them to email questions to…to make the book more ‘real’ and wondered if this would be a possibility.
