The articles included here were originally published in Blue Water Sailing magazine over a period of several years. They cover diverse topics, but each is intended to enhance the safety and efficiency of navigation. Though published in a magazine devoted to sailing, these subjects and the information contained applies to all vessels, power, sail, and paddle.
They have been regrouped by topic, so the order presented here does not reflect the order of original publication. For the most part they deal with special issues, not often covered in detail in standard references. Some were motivated by issues of the day when published, but we have updated all as needed with new resources on the topics.
