We also subscribed to Good Old Boat magazine and we are members of Seven Seas Cruising Association.
We’ve subscribed to the www.waterwayguide.com newsletter since there is a good chance we’ll navigate the Intracoastal waterway.
We have also downloaded videos from www.thesailingchannel.tv
And of course searching for sailing videos on youtube has provided us with many hours of entertainment.
