Sweetwater Sojourn
"From Lake Michigan to the St. Lawrence Seaway, a diversity of water, language and culture awaited, and this cruising couple didn’t even have to cross an ocean to experience it."

Shakedown: Chesapeake to Narragansett Bay
"No one starts out as an expert. We develop sailing competency along the way, mostly by trial and error. Start with what you know: your home waters. Then stretch your legs from there and get a taste of what open-ocean sailing is all about. This month, we take a close look at the run from the Chesapeake to Narragansett Bay. "

A Refit Reality Check
"Our systems worked well (excepting minor glitches, of course) throughout an extended cruise down the chain of the West Indies to Venezuela and back, but as I became more successful as a writer, we could afford and began to hanker after some of those gadgets and gilhickies we frequently encountered on more affluent boats. "

Picking Your Point of Departure
"The departure points on the U.S. East Coast for most boats bound for the Caribbean can be grouped into four geographical sections: Beaufort, North Carolina, just south of Cape Hatteras; the Virginia capes; southern New England; and southern Florida. "

The Caribbean Cruiser’s Offshore Kit
"If you don’t have heating aboard, try an old trick I picked up in the U.S. Navy. Buy enough flowerpots to put one upside down over each of your stove burners, held in place by pot holders. Turn the stove on, and the flowerpots will do a surprisingly good job of warming the cabin."

The 450-Mile High-Seas Salvage
"As we approached for a closer look, we imagined bodies and bullet holes or a trap set by pirates. A bridle of 1-inch rode hung over the bow, suggesting that a sea anchor had been set in a storm. Something had gone terribly wrong. "
