I just wanted to let everyone know that we have partnered with CruisersWiki.org
to help support the Open Source project
. To access Cruisers Wiki
just click on the wiki link at the top of every page. If you would like to give back to the Cruising community please consider joining and contributing some knowledge from your sailing experiences.
Here is an overview of what the Cruisers Wiki is all about
The World Cruising and Sailing Wiki (an online world cruising guide) has been established so that all cruisers around the world can have free access to as much information on cruising around the world as possible with information on Countries, Immigration and Customs procedures, world ports, navigation and approaches, marinas, anchorages, ocean passages, maritime warnings, boating tips, etc. A FREE, ONLINE WORLD CRUISING GUIDE!
This Cruising and Sailing Wiki is a resource to which all cruisers are encouraged to freely contribute and thereby help to build a great reference resource for the benefit of all cruisers that are sailing around the world.
SINK YOUR TEETH INTO A SECTION AND BUILD IT!

Special thanks goes out to Bob Hobbes and the crew over at Cruisers Log who gave birth to this project
. They have contributed thousands of hours to get the wiki setup and submitted hundreds of articles. It's time for us to join on them on this project and contribute our knowledge as well.
