Neat to see our blog (Sundowner Sails Again) mentioned as well. We aren't out cruising yet, but have our mini-adventures around here and along the coast.
Tate and I have been reading sailing blogs for many years now and it's interesting to watch the "phases" or "groups" of people setting off to sail go by. One day we'll be part of that group. Jan 1 2015 everything willing!
A few of my favs for people actually out there (more on our Friends Page):
Bettie Del Mar
Vlad, Attila and a Hedgehog left Galveston and are now in Panama for a few months.
German Phil sails a 50 footer (i think) with various young (and hot) crew over off of Spain. Really neat blog here.
Heather and Pip leave the Rat race of DC and head south to the Carib.
Livia and Carol sailed from Canada down to Baja then across to the South Pacific.
Verena and Mike set sail and are now down in the Sea of Cortez, looking to buy a bigger boat and cruise farther
Kyra and Rick set sail from up north and now down on the West Coast of Mexico.
They have 2 kids but I wouldn't consider it to be a parenting blog. They sailed from WA to Baja and are now in the South Pacific. She is a good writer.
and of course Controlled Jibe
above as they are right there in the action getting ready.
