Sailing Blogs

Not that The Slapdash has competed their big circle and their blog is winding down, what other blogs do you guys follow?
I'm hooked onto Zerotocruising but I need more so if you have some that you follow that are interesting and also pass along good info, please post them so we can all follow...

PS: Thanks to the Slappy crew for allowing us to live through them...

Here's one I've been following. He's now in my neck of the woods after doing the Horn and sailing up the coast of Argentina.

Re: Sailing Blogs

I agree with Mike about Windtraveler and Sailing Around the Globe blogs - both are great, and refreshingly different. I read both regularly!

I think many of you will also enjoy our blog, titled Vacilando at www.mondovacilando.com

We're currently ranked as #12 on Blog Nation's Sailing Blogs. Here's the description:

"This is the story about a man, a woman, a dog, and a journey. Meet Chris, Melody, and Jet. They sold their house and almost everything in it to move aboard a 35' sailboat in search of simplicity and the freedom that comes with it."

I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think!

I look forward to reading some of the above suggestions, too - there are a few that I haven't heard of.

Happy sailing!

Re: Sailing Blogs

Hey there,
I just found this thread because I was actually looking to revisit The Slapdash, since they are one of my favorite sailing blogs of all time. And I got here but couldn't find their blog archives anywhere on the web. Does anyone know if the site got taken down, or if it's at another address? I thought it was TheSlapDash (+.com - I'm not allowed to type in URLs here ti seems)

Since some people here were looking for sailing blogs to follow, I thought maybe I should trumpet a little and let you know that my husband and I are cruisers in the Caribbean and we're about to do the Clipper Round the World Race - 2 legs of it, from England to Brazil, then from South Africa to Australia.

So if you're interested in following the blog of some cruisers-turned-racers, check out Turf to Surf at TurfToSurf (+.com - again I can't type in URLs or my comment gets rejected) :-)

PB, you need to add "momo and the big blue world", "The Drake" and momo, just landed in St. Johns NF.

Drake, the guy that does the killer cruiser vids.

Re: Sailing Blogs

Sometimes I get lost in the blogs, there are so many good ones. Interestingly, I met Chris (Melody1204) today at dockside in Oriental, NC. We were admiring a couple small but seaworthy yachts there while Chris and I traded yarns. A pleasure to meet you, Chris. I look forward to the adventures of Vacilando and her crew! See you soon on the Chesapeake.
