Some reading and shopping for you.
As promised I spent some time updating our Research Page yesterday, adding in a good number of new cruising links as well as shuffling a few around. At our friend Drew’s suggestion I also added in the links for the weather sites that we check to get our forecasts. Perhaps these will be helpful to some of the newer sailors out there.
After Saturday’s long hash I am reminded of how much we like our new but highly-used Camelbaks. With all the hiking we’re doing in the hot sun the 70 oz Camelbak Rogues that we purchased are a godsend. Specialty items like this are all but impossible to find down here and when they are, they’re almost always being sold for at least 50% more than you could pick them up for in North America. If you are of the active sort, I would definitely include these in the “don’t leave home without them” category.
