Make me number 36 for today! Cute boat but no motor even a small kicker?

Re: FAVORITE SAILING WEBSITES??

Google Earth. I know it isn't exactly sailing but it's relevant and I think a lot of us use it often. I use it to plan our trip. It's like window shopping the planet.
On the subject of self promotion, I love my wife's posts on our website (link below). She's an absolute genius of a writer, one of the best that I've ever seen.

Thats great and I hope to be where you are some day in the not to distant future. BUT this is a good thread, however it could be broke up in two sections. 1 for information and 2 for entertainment. Windtravler would fall under the entertainment section. I say this to say all these cool blogs help many guys with there significant others.

My case in point, I have know I wanted to sail and live aboard my whole life. My significant other is kinda new to this whole thing. I try and pick blogs and websites that I want her to see. Watching other couples out having fun doing this makes it all look possible. This has been a help I must say.

Now I will say not all blogs are good. Some peoples blogs are laid out so bad I can't believe any one looks at them. Others are just great.

Nice, thanks for reading!

And no, no motor whatsoever. A 100% pure sailing vessel.

Re: FAVORITE SAILING WEBSITES??

Mine is of course:

Catalina 25-250-Capri25 Association

But, I'm biased! Really though, it's my daily landing spot to communicate with other C25 owners about anything and everything. I've even made some new friends IRL and gone sailing with them!

Re: Favorite Sailing Websites

I'm really quite fond of my own site:

The Cruising Kitty

wherein I, Captain Cat, whip my first mate, The Can Opener, into shape so that we can chart a course to get cruising. We're currently training in the Solent and doing passages across the Med, the Canaries and the Azores.

Sailing is what I live for, the reason I bounce out of my basket every day at the crack of noon. The wind in my stripes, my cup of mojo bubbling on the galley stove, the whole sea like an endless fish supermarket ahead of me...

The Can Opener'll need to be fit, a navigating wizard and he'll need to have a steel-riveted financial plan that will keep my velvet-tasseled cruising kitty bag loaded with enough coins for the cruising life I aspire to and deserve.

I'll even share my smoked oysters with him from time to time. Everybody needs a first mate.

Re: Favorite Sailing Websites

I don't believe in self promotion so you should not even contemplate looking at this site which might be ours.

Sailing Cygnus III around the world

OK, we sold everything we had, took our boys out of school and just went for the dream.

Now if I were writing this blog, which I am, I would want to make it different to others out there and include some rather unpolitically correct observations.

As I said, I don't believe in self promotion so I won't advise you to have a look at

Re: Favorite Sailing Websites

This is one of the coolest exploratory sailing sites that exists ...

I am not a huge fan of Catamarans but what these guys have done is awesome

Hi Captain Cat
The Can Opener seems to be responding well to the challenges you set
Good luck with the two year plan. Good idea starting the downsizing early. You and the first mate look very organized.
We share a love of oysters - my favourite are Kilpatrick though .

I'm sure I mentioned our site for a more tongue in cheek approach but just in case you missed it...
