Re: Cruising vs. Voyaging

I agree, SEMANTICS.

Like everyone said, use your boat any which way you feel good about.

To me, The word voyaging implies long term, While cruising is something that can be accomplished in a few weeks.
Maybe it has something to do with how much of your life you dedicate to being aboard, and sailing the boat, compared to life ashore...

Re: Cruising vs. Voyaging

jeje cool thread

to me voyaging is like what motissier did...long passages with little need or want to stop and relax

cruising encompasses all from point a to b trips and in whatever form...

for example I would define a voyage as going from california to australia with maybe only a stop to refuel and provision

whereas that same route cruising would do the south pacific, tuamotos, atolls, head up to fiji, then back down etc...

I would consider a delivery for example a voyage, thats just me though

I also think it is semantics but if you want to get down to it you can find differences in the two

peace
