What are Your Fall Sailing Plans?

What are your sailing plans this Fall? It begins today!

Friday, September 22, is the Fall Equinox. Officially, this means summer is over. Unofficially, it means you might get to stretch out your summer of sailing just a little more, depending on where you live. Of course if you live in the southern part of the globe, it means you’re actually heading toward summer rather than away from it.

How You Can Help Hurricane Relief Efforts

It’s been more than a week since Hurricane Irma’s devastating assault on the Caribbean, and almost three weeks since Hurricane Harvey made landfall and left a trail of destruction in its wake. Many of us are familiar with these regions as some of our favorite sailing grounds, and probably just as many of us have never visited either.
