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...

Re: Sailing Blogs

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.

Sailing isn't a matter of life and death. It's much more important than that!
