wr_wrangell's is both funny, & informative. Snowpetrel's is good reading too. And Liz Clark's has been a fav for a number of years.

Re: Favorite sailing blogs

I can enjoy a brief look at a sailing blog now and then, but I can't imagine following one. It reminds me of years ago, being invited over to someone's house and a showing of their family movies,- exciting for them, but this gets old very fast. Maybe these blogs would be interesting for those that are not cruising themselves.

Rather than following the events of one boat and crew, I'm more interested in sharing ideas with a large varied community. This is why I can follow forums, but not blogs.

Re: Favorite sailing blogs

I've moved more to YouTube than blogs the last while. I find them entertaining to watch since we aren't back on the boat until January, and there are some things to learn here & there.

Some to check out:

- Sailing SV Delos
- Sailing La Vagabonde
- White Spot Pirates
- Catamaran Impi
- RAN Sailing
- Gone with the Wynns
- Sailing Nandji - Frothlyfe
- Chase the Story Sailing
- Sailing Uma
- Sailing Trio Travels

They each have a different flavor. Have fun!

Great list and in the right order too. Start at the top and work your way down.

S/V Prism.
Met them at their boat in Berkeley just before they shoved off. Jon and Shannon are a very nice young couple. They are an informative blog/vlog.
They documented crossing Pt Conception (a big topic for us left coast sailors) as well as red tape issues with clearing into Mexico (TIP headache). They just posted their Canal Transit. Excellent documentation of those procedures.
They are in the middle of repowering and dropped the engine when pulling it up the companionway - eek!!!
