sailingfool will become famous soon enough
sailorgirl.com

I came across the above link from a discussion in the CS owners email list, and I suspect many board readers may enjoy it: http://www.sailorgirl.com/s/s_index.htm.
The web page tracks the experiences of a couple using the monikers sailor girl and pirate guy, cruising their CS 27 round about the Caribbean and speaks volumes to many threads we seen onthe board: how big, whats bluewater, and more. Hopefully some of you may enjoy it as I have.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Nice site. I love sailing logs/blogs/online journals about sailing adventures. They're inspiring and informational (both what to do and what NOT to do).

Here's a couple of my favorites:

I've met Sailorgirl several times here in Toronto. They live here during the summer where she makes some nice jewelry which she sells at various craft fairs.

Regarding the mast, the blog is a bit out of date but they lost the mast during a hurricane a couple of years ago. The adjoining boat fell on to theirs and knocked their mast down. They cobled together a replacement I believe from another similar size boat that was a write-off. They also upgraded their engine the same way. The standard 8 hp. Yanmar is generally considered somewhat underpowered for serious cruising work in the CS 27.

BTW - they are very pleased with the boat which hasn't given them any trouble as far as I know.

Excellent! I love reading these. Inspiration, ya know.

I met this guy, very breifly, in Oakland, CA a month or so ago. I had no idea at the time just who he was. I was informed of his site yesterday and it's a good one...
