There are so many good sailing blogs out there to read and learn from. Here are a few of my favorites:
Zero to Cruising: the first blog I read from the beginning, Mike and Rebecca started in Canada on a PDQ, and are now in the Caribbean as charter captains on a Leopard 46 called One Love. Mike does most of the posting (I think Rebecca has done 3 posts) and most of them are maintenance related. They are very outdoorsy and have published a guide to hiking in the Caribbean. Now the blog gears towards maintenance of One Love and setting up the charter business, so I’ve fallen off on reading it. Looking back at the begining, anyone who is planning a trip from Canada to the east coast should definitely read this blog!
Field Trip: we actually met Mark and Sara once before, but we’d been reading their blog already! Mark and Sara are on an Antares and have cruised for several years through North and South America. Mark produces amazing video blogs and provides lots technical tips in terms of navigation that my captain likes to read! And, in their recent posts, they have decided to make the leap over to the Pacific. I hope we catch up to them someday, but it is probably doubtful.
Ultra: Bill and Joanne I have met in my past life (before marraige). They are Caribbean cruisers, and post maybe once every few months, but it’s a big post! There are lots of wonderful pictures and they are both divers.
The Boat Galley: While not technically a cruising blog, I find this really helpful to think about the logistics of the galley and supplies (even some things to ask for as Christmas gifts!). She also talks a lot about books and general lifestyle topics.
