Greetings, We are contemplating going down the Pacific coast of South America to Chile. Does anyone know of the best sources/cruisers guides they can recommend?

Hi. I am new to the group. I was wondering if any of you come to Grenada Caribbean, and if you do I am a Massage Therapist who work at a beautiful holiday retreat called Cabier Oceon Lodge, and if came and dock around that area can come and have a lovely massage if not try and accommodate you to anywhere you happen to be. Many thanks, also check my newly group called Massage on shore or anyone for a massage. Many thanks

Hi everyone, My son is 23 Years old. He has just finished his Day Skippers ticket. He is looking for an opportunity to crew in order to build sea miles to progress to his next ticket. Inbox me or better still mail me on cycletronc1 at hotmail dot com if you have a berth available. Many thanks Shaun

Has anyone on this site tried going thru the Red Sea lately? My Cal 30 Saltaire was boarded by the Somali Board of Tourism on March 5, 2004, and I swore never to return. Things any better now?

We've been taking in wekend trips to Catalina in SoCal since I finished the circumnav. But Marilu and I are getting the itch to buy a bigger boat and do the South Pacific again, but this time to see the places we missed.

We started in Vancouver in 2009, currently in Valdivia, Chile and preparing to continue south.

I am recently retired and looking to gain some bluewater experience. I would like to crew for someone who needs an additional crew member for a bluewater passage. I teach both the basic and advanced celestial navigation classes for the USPS and would be willing to teach anyone onboard during the passage. A motivated person should be able to take sun sights and get a reliable running fix on a series of sun sights after 2-3 days of practice. Some additional instruction should allow star, planet, and moon sights to be taken with confidence. One of the nice things about being able to take moon sights is that the moon and sun are often available at the same time. This gives a "fix," as opposed to a "running fix," and is more reliable. You can also get a fix by taking star/planet sights at twilight. I have two high quality metal sextants, so you wouldn't even need your own sextant. If anyone doubts the desirability of knowing celestial navigation for bluewater cruising, look up book called "Red Sky in Mourning."
