All the information on this website is copyrighted by the authors.

AAC owns exclusive world wide web rights to all of the content published on this site and all rights are reserved. (AAC is a cooperative in which the contributors share in the revenues.)

Fair Use

Notwithstanding the above, it is acceptable for you to use quotes of a reasonable length from this website, as long as you include an attribution with a link to this website, and that use is non-commercial. We would view “reasonable length” as being up to 10% of a given article, but no more.

You may also reproduce photographs from this site if, and only if:

  • Your use is non-commercial.
  • You clearly link to the relevant content on our site.
  • You do not crop or alter the photograph in any way without our specific written permission to do so. (You may make it smaller, without cropping, to fit your layout.)
  • You make it clear that the photograph is copyrighted. (We will deem that this condition has been met as long as our copyright notice on the photograph is legible; if not, we require you to add a copyright notice immediately under the photograph.)

Republication (Syndication)

AAC may give you permission to republish an article from this site on your site, under the following terms:

  • You apply to us for written permission in each case. We don’t provide blanket republication rights. Contact us here.
  • The article includes a clear statement of the author’s copyright and a link to the original as follows: “originally published at Attainable Adventure Cruising, all rights are reserved”.
  • The republished article has a rel=”cononical” tag in the header pointing to the original article on this site.

The last requirement is simply good SEO (search engine optimization) practice and is as much to protect you from being labelled as a “scraper” by Google as to protect our page rank.


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.
