Blog aspirations - all sorts of sailing

Scroll down for two blogs below giving links to the authors, and to the existing 'experience' blogs sitting under this master.  This master blog is a 'note to ourselves' really, plus an aspiration of the other history that might be added here, a reminder of the style and content that we are trying to pursue, and a way of pulling all the other blogs together as they build up over the years.

The histories then that could be captured here one day, for context and posterity, are:
- Nic's sailing history including SIRENA I and II - dinghies in Dorset and some passages
- Lesley's sailing history - from Greek idyll to dinghies on the Thames
- SIRENA III - Jaguar 25 at Greenwich and Gillingham
- SIRENA IV - Nicholson 35 - the first year: purchase, Fleetwood, Irish Sea and IoM adventures.  This yacht is everything we want - strong, safe, go anywhere and manageable by husband and wife co-skippers.

As to the style and content, when  we read other blogs and articles we are often left feeling we have a surfeit of land-based information at the expense of sailing information. Therefore we aspire to write about passage plans, weather, sea conditions, sail plan, navigation and breaks & fixes.  Because this is what we find interesting to read from others, and we imagine some others at least will be interested to read it here.

Please add comments to our blog entries - we really welcome them, and will respond.
