Know About Seven Seas Cruising Association?
It occurred to me that newer members here may not be aware of the SSCA. It is a very useful organization for those who are interested in extended cruising. Some of their services are free, like their discussion board - not as busy as here but very knowledgeable people and no politics!.
If you join, you get access to many more of their services including the Bulletin which has exceptionally helpful articles ('letters') from members who are out there cruising. The Bulletin is available in paper or .pdf form. The SSCA also has very friendly 'gams' in different locations over the year. Finally they have online courses of interest to sailors. These sessions are taught by highly knowledgeable people in their fields, like Jimmy Cornell, Lee Chesneau, and Kathy Parsons. You don't have to be a member to take advantage of these, but they are cheaper if you are a member.
You can check it all out at ssca.org
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
