Resource List

2. NAVIGATION AND PILOTING RESOURCES

3. HF Communications

4. Ripping Great Yarns of the Sea

The 1800s and early 1900s constituted a golden age of recreational exploration by sail. Jack London, for example, wrote many books based on his experiences. Guess what! Their copyrights have expired! Project Gutenberg (a non-governmental effort to digitize every book ever printed) makes them freely available. Every book published overseas or in the US prior to 1923 is probably on this site and can be downloaded at no cost. Shakespeare's copyright has also expired. Download any and read while at sea. Any text reader, iPod, Kindle, or word processor will work. Some even have audio files!

5. Periodicals

The following growing list of periodicals is dedicated to sailing issues.
