    Default Liveaboard Blogs and Websites

    Being relative novice liveaboards we have noticed that the people on this forum are spread far and wide and between them have a wealth of information.

    A lot of liveaboards also have websites that others would find amusing, informative and helpful for the area they are sailing in.

    My suggestion is to put your website on this thread along with a broad area that it covers and where you are now so others sailing to those areas can pick your brains, gain knowledge from the blogs or even meet up for a drink. Putting the type of boat you sail may also help others if they have the same type.

    To start the ball rolling our website is probably not your usual type but a light harted look at the places and people we are visiting along the way.

    Here

    We are on an Oyster 45 and having sailed England we have been to Normandy the Chanel Islands and are now in Britany (we think).
    As an update we have now been sailing nearly three years so our blog now covers Spain, Portugal, Med Spain, The Balearic's, part of Sardinia and Sicily.

    Please feel free to send an e mail as it is always good to make new friends and ignore the people you don't like.

    I fear that this thread could become a very career limiting read!

    I used to keep one until I realised how few people actually read it. The effort was simply not worth keeping so few in reading material. Sorry Mum.

    Saying that, I am still very much in favour of websites that provide excellent information ~ especially for free:
    http://www.cruiser.co.za ~ dig a little to find pilotage info for the whole world.
    http://www.cruiser.co.za ~ dig a little more to find user manuals for just about anything related to your boat.
    http://www.noonsite.com ~ more pilotage info.
    http://www.windguru.com ~ one of many, many free weather sites.
    http://www.7knots.com ~ one of many free crew/boat finder websites.
    http://www.bluemoment.com ~ great source of information and also owned by a forumite.
    http://www.uksail.com/ ~ links to many sailing related sites

    There are several others. Since this thread is about our own blogs or websites, I don't feel shy about giving my new site a punt. I started Desperate Sailors which does many things and is completely free for boat owners and crew:
    ~ You've arrived in a new anchorage and desperately need a mechanic. Anchored in the same bay is a mechanic that doesn't charge mega bucks. Desperate Sailors connects you.
    ~ You've left it too late and need to head south to avoid the hurricane season and desperately need crew with good watch keeping experience. Desperate Sailors connects you.
    ~ You arrive in a new anchorage and desperately want to know where the next social event is. Desperate Sailors connects you with the pot luck, book swap, BBQ, boat jumble, open mic night...
    ~ Stay in touch with sailing friends, chat or message them. Create events, photo albums.

    In summary, it is about sailors helping fellow sailors.

    Bavaria 38, currently in Kalamos. The blog is below, not up to date, as it's too much like hard work to work at it during the day and I like a beer or three in the evening....
