Sorry it’s been so long since our last blog post! It’s been a busy few months since we tied up to the dock in Port Angeles, Washington back in August, but we hope to post more soon – we have some pretty pictures of backpacking in the Alps to share as well as some boring shots of boat repairs…. In the meantime, here’s a little news of our recent published pieces for those of you who are interested. 🙂
First off, the editor of Ocean Navigator surprised us when an image Seth had taken of me appeared on the cover of the most recent issue!
Seth snapped this in the Aleutian Islands in 2015 – I’m organizing our many paper charts for the voyage we made to the Alaskan Arctic and the northernmost tip of America. I don’t have any pieces in this November/December issue, but lots of my earlier Ocean Navigator articles are now available online: “An Unusual High Latitude Vessel: What worked and what didn’t aboard a cold-molded classic“, “Managing Seasickness“, my contribution to “Voyagers’ Favorite Apps“, and “Two Hands on Deck“, a piece in the 2016 annual special edition Ocean Voyager.
I was also very flattered to be asked to be a judge for this year’s Chuck Husick Marine Technology Award, given each year by Ocean Navigator. The finalists are in and are all really innovative and interesting – tough to choose among so many great nominees! You can read about them here!
Cruising World is coming out with several of my stories this winter but in the meantime a piece from this summer is now online here, although I think the original print version – a double-page spread! – looks even better. 🙂 The photo was also the cover shot for the Ocean Cruising Club‘s biannual publication Flying Fish!
Last but not least, here’s my piece 10 Items for Cold Weather Sailing that came out in Blue Water Sailing this summer.
