magazines (U.S.)

which sailing magazines do people like and why? since my interest is mainly in learning to sail offshore and do some Atlantic coast/ICW cruising on a 30-40ft sloop rather than yacht club regattas, racing, and the like, which ones would be more pertinent and informative?

cheers,

Sully

OMG. This post will just spawn another "death of paper" duel.

To be sure, we will all be reading Cruisers Forum.

I don't see how they got your Gender wrong? One look at you and they would have seen a saucy seagoing wench. Must be blind, I bet...
Now please don't hunt me down and cause me bodily harm....

Re: magazines (U.S.)

I am lmao! On another forum to which I belong (Newfoundland dog owners) newbies come on all the time and ask questions that sometimes result in a mild flaming. Since I'd done quite a bit of homework before procuring a Newfoundland dog, it was easy to avoid there.

But, because I'm a total greenhorn at sailing and am just getting hip to the vibe here, I stepped right into this one! Let there be no aggro stirred up on my account.

Zeehag, I get it and am with you. Although the whole 'I want to live on a boat' idea has been germinating for several years, only recently have I started actually looking online at boats for sale. So, I'm afraid a bit of glossy sailboat porn may be irresistible during this stage!

A large collection of books, many owned since childhood, will be one of the things that I'll have to part with should I decide to shift to part-time or full-time cruising. At one time, I never would have even considered this, but I'm feeling ready. An e-reader will become a necessity at some point, I suppose. Lots of paper is used wastefully, I'll admit, but I'll always prefer a paper book.

Anyhoo, I'll be sure to check out Latitude 38 online. Thanks!

Re: magazines (U.S.)

Welcome, wannabe.. you might also check out Lattitudes and Attitudes as well as Practical Sailor. The only glossy I used to read was Passagemaker, mostly geared to high end powerboats but had some really informative articles on all aspects of cruising... cheers, Capt Phil

Re: magazines (U.S.)

I like Latts & Atts. also and Wooden boat, I just like to look at the nice wooden boats. Cruising world used be okay, but the advert money trumped the cruising part. I also read National Fisherman.

Good Old Boat - Welcome to Good Old Boat Magazine offers a free introductory (review) issue.
This is a sailing magazine with a focus on maintenance and upgrades. If you're not a sailor, the magazine is probably not for you.
