My name is Robin and I sail a Pearon Triton 28. I recently sailed to the Bahamas
and back and she sailed great ! I am new to cruising and have a few questions
1. I sailed to the Bahamas
and back without a SSB
. I'm assuming should I want to cross the Atlantic I should have one. Would a SAt phone
be better? I would like to have better communications
with boats out there.
Any recommendations for a single
hander on a budget
? Given, that I'm a facebooker I'd like to up load my funny
antics on the water
.....droping the halyard
, watching my jib
sheet drop down thru the cockpit
drain and around the prop....the things the inexperience do. Anyway, just thought if I'd had my camera
and was hooked up to my computer I could do all that
when on the hook. What would be the easiest way to say connected to fellow boaters and the internet
2. Does anyone cross the Atlantic during the winter months? FL to Bahamas to Azores
? Is there a way to hook up with other fellow sailor for a crossing?
3. How many of you use a life raft?
4. I assume an EBIRB is essential for Atlantic crossing
Can ya send me in the right direction.....best wishes robin
