ShearwaterExperience.com has recently launched a series of pages dealing with several topics pertinent to the sport of sailing. The site updates regularly to provide tips and hints to make the sailor’s life easier, but the new series deals with specific interest that may be of interest. For example, the article on blue water sailing tackles the specific issues sailors face when they venture out of sight of land on an extended voyage. Blue water is often in international jurisdictions, and can pose unique weather challenges. It also requires specific navigation skills. Navigation is discussed in another of the new pages. Sailing navigation deals with several skills. Ancient mariners used the stars and sun and sometimes a compass and a sextant. Modern navigators also have the benefit of GPS systems, but must also be familiar with regulatory navigation signals such as buoys and daymarks, which are covered in the new page. Another of the new articles talks about marine jobs. For some, sailing is enjoyable enough to be a full time job, and this article discusses ways to make that dream a reality.
ShearwaterExperience.com is a blog updated regularly by a grandmother who is also an experienced sailor. Her sailing in her own boat has focused primarily on the coastal areas near New England, and she has served as crew on larger boats in Bermuda, Florida, Canada and areas in between. The site is named for the Shearwater, a bird that spends the majority of its life at sea. Site design and maintenance is by WebsiteBusiness.com.
