For an English
class at the university, we have started writing our semester project
, an Ethnography, which is the study of people within their own culture. We could choose any culture or group of people to write about. I have chosen to write about "Modern Explorers" and broken that down into a few subcultures. One being long distance sailing. I have been given permission to use this forum as a source in some of my research
about the culture.
Things I need learn about the sailing culture would be things like, common practices, preparation, gear
, things you need like water
, power, etc.
What type of people these ocean sailors tend to be...really anything that defines the culture of long distance offshore
I am a sailor myself and usually don't go offshore
(the farthest I have been is 10miles out) and tend to race
more regattas around the southeast.
I am trying to find this information to support my paper and would be greatly appreciative if anyone can point me in the right direction.
