You are either going to love this blog or hate it. There are two distinctive types of sailors out there. Those who go sailing to take a digital detox and just disconnect from social media, reality shows and other digital media, that can cause stress. And those that start shaking once their cellphone loses connection with the cellular masts on the shore. Stop reading this blog if you are the latter of those sailors, using VHF to communicate home, paper charts and paper pilot books to navigate and who listens to CD’s. If not, sit back and enjoy this blog.
We have seen a few lists here and there, but we felt that all of them missed a thing or two. That is why we prepared this list for you, based on 15 years of sailing on a rental boat. If you feel some is missing, let us know!
One week every year, we as five friends, are “dismissed” from our wife’s to go sailing. This started back in college, via a student organization who organized a sailing week somewhere in Croatia or Greece with around 20 to 25 sailing boats. After college we continued doing this by renting a “bare-boat” somewhere in the Mediterranean. This year it will be the 15th year in a row.
