Do You Know Small Craft Advisor?

By Sailingguide

Small Craft Advisor magazine is much beloved among its readers - who may be virtually anyone who loves small sailboats and craft that are rowed or paddled. It's full of all kinds of useful stuff for boaters, including do-it-yourself projects and boat reviews and articles about great places for boating, but in the winter its reader-contributed adventure narratives simply make great armchair reading. This is a "real" side of boating you seldom see in those newsstand glossies that so often seem written by marketing departments. This morning I was reading a piece by a 70-year-old woman with a pacemaker and two hip implants who sails her tiny craft alone and loves every minute of it - what a reminder of things that matter and an inspiration! She shares how she's improved her boat to make her soloing safer. Then I read a story about a Scotsman who sailed his little boat 51 days straight and has much to share about his perceptions of time and history gained on his voyaging.
