Back in February we rolled out (and I wrote about) the first phase of our 2020 improvements to this site, which focused on simplification, improved readability on phones, and speed. That was all good, but it quickly became apparent that the next thing needed was a damned good housecleaning and re-categorization of our content. Here’s what we did.
In case we didn’t manage to cure your insomnia with Part 1, we now have Part 2. The good news is that this is the last one that’s relevant for members, and now we can all get back to something we actually care about: offshore voyaging.
One of the very best things about this site is the wisdom and experience that you, our members, share in the form of comments, as well as the fact checking you do. And by far the majority of the time you are reasonable and self-policed—thank you. However, there have been a few exceptions, so please [...]
The Best of Both Worlds There are several ways to download our Online Books for reading when you don’t have internet access.

Nothing on this website or in direct communications received from us, or in our articles in the media, should be construed to mean or imply that offshore voyaging is anything other than potentially hazardous. Dangers such as, but not limited to, extreme weather, cold, ice, lack of help or assistance, gear failure, grounding, and falling overboard could injure or kill you and wreck your boat.
Decisions such as, but not limited to, heading offshore, where you go, and how you equip your boat, are yours and yours alone. The information on this web site is based on what has worked for the authors in the past, but that does not mean it will work for you, or that it is the best, or even a good way for you to do things.
