Sailing Blogs

Once upon a time, I wrote a post about nine sailing blogs I had a bit of a crush on. In some ways, I really wish I hadn't written that post because it only called out just a few of the many, many, many blogs I follow and adore. To be honest, those were really just the ones that were on my mind on that particular day. So, as a follow-up to that post, I thought I would start a list of all of the sailing blogs currently on my radar screen.

I think it is great that people are so willing to share their sailing adventures - whether they're just in the planning stage, have been out there for years or have pulled up the anchor and moved onto a new stage of their life. There are so many different perspectives, styles of writing, descriptions of different places you can sail and travel to, stories of the highs and the lows, fantastic pictures and some great comedy moments as well. I've been truly inspired by all of the blogs that I have been reading and learned heaps.

I have to say that I've found that discovering new sailing blogs to read is sometimes like a little bit of a treasure hunt. There are gems hidden out there, but sometimes hard to find. And I know that I've always appreciated it when other people have shared their blog rolls as they have pointed me in the direction of new sailing blogs to read and adventures to follow. So now it is my turn to share as well with my sailing blog list below.

If you don't see your blog here and want to share, let me know as I would love to check it out and add to the list.

  1. Thanks for a great list, its blowing 40 and raining, a perfect day for some web sailing :)

    1. Thanks - sounds like a perfect day to read sailing blogs!

  2. Oooh, so many new ones to check out! Plus yours of course - I HAD to click on a blog titled "The Cynical Sailor" when it showed up in our "referrers" list. Too bad I don't have reliable enough internet to get through all of these - gonna have to pick and choose a bit. Hardly Anything Works is on the short list - we can totally relate. Definitely check out Venture Minimalists (http://www.ventureminimalists.net/) and SV Red Thread (http://svtheredthread.com) - two other young couples I follow via the blogosphere. Nice to meet you electronically!!!

    All the best,
    SV Serenity

    1. Thanks Harmony - great suggestions which I'll check out and add to this list!

  3. Good morning from the Mediterranean, We are a family who sold everything they own 4 years ago to buy a boat to live aboard whilst we sail around the world slowly. If you want to do things properly then don't look at our blogs as we are always getting into trouble and messing things up. We would be honoured if you could add us and our boat Cygnus III to your list though.

    1. Wow, your blog looks very cool with some great graphics! Have added you to the list. Can't wait to explore your adventures as it is reassuring to know that other people get into trouble and mess things up too!

  4. Thank you to The Cynical Sailor for adding us to the list. You will see that if you can do something wrong then we have done it. We do occasionally learn by our mistakes but we also find newer and far better ways of doing something else wrong. Thank you again for adding us.

  5. Great list of blogs! I'm especially interested in sailing in Europe, i am sure i will find something for myself there! Thanks!

  6. I would like to welcome you to our Sailing Community - Clubtray Sailing

  7. Agree totally with your appreciation of sailing blogs. Great way to share info and adventure. We sail Australia - All of it. Our website has Cruising Guides, masses of photos and vids, practical tips and of course our blog.

    1. You guys have a great website - lots of useful information for folks wanting to sail in Australia!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing our blog - it's fun to be part of the blogging community and to learn so much from everyone here!

  9. Yay! Nice to be on your list. Thank you :) Can't wait for a rainy day and a sleeping baby so I can start checking all these out xx

  10. Glad we made the list! sure means a lot. Thank you for enjoying our travels. - LivingAdrift.com S/V Splendid Isolation

    1. Looking forward to following long on your adventures :-)

  11. Just wanted to say thanks for adding our blog (MangoesMarleyAndMermaids.com) to your list! We're still new to the whole blogging thing, but we're trying hard! :)

    1. No problem! Love having you guys on the list - you have a fun blog :-)

  12. Hi there,

    we've returned from Mexico, but are still keeping up our sailing (etc) blog:



    1. Thanks for sharing David! I've added you guys to the sailing blog list and am looking forward to following along with your adventures!

    2. What a wonderful list! Lots for us to read through...we have just finished our first season cruising...and have set up a blog :) would be great to add it to your list! Check out:

    3. Thanks for sharing a link to your blog. I've added you onto the list and looking forward to following along on your adventres!

  13. Thank you so much for adding us to the list!

  14. Would you add my blog to your list?
    thank you.

    1. Hi Rik - I had you listed under Building a Pathfinder originally, but now I've changed it to Sailing Vanessa :-)

  15. Thanks so much for listing us. Wowzers there are so many blogs out there and I bet this is just a small handful really. All these blogs mean all those people writing them that have some awesome memories to read back on later in life. Great post.

    1. Happy to have you guys on board - your blog is really interesting and I love the fact that you split your travels between your boat and camper van.

  16. This is a great list, thanks so much!
    Feel free to add us: http://www.aroundncircles.com

    -Matt & Michelle on s/v Giro

    1. Thanks for popping by - have added you onto the list :-)

  17. Hi, great blog,great list of potential reading.
    Www.poormanssailing.WordPress.com is my feeble attempt!

    1. Hi - I've added you to the list! Given your focus on buying and restoring a boat on a tight budget, I'm sure lots of people will find it of interest. We're all looking for ways to save money given how expensive boats are :-)

  18. Thanks so much for having OurWaterLog.com on your list! I just found you and was surprised we made it! Thank again

  19. Hi Ellen,

    Feel free to add our sailing blog It's Irie (www.itsirie.com)to the list. It documents our eight years of cruising on our 35 foot catamaran, from the beginning to the end, from the US East Coast through the Caribbean to Tahiti in the Pacific.

    1. Sorry Liesbet - I can't believe I missed this comment. I've added you on :-)

  20. "The cynical sailor'! I had to take a look :-)
    What a great blog! I have only just started my blog (www.sailingkoala.co.uk), but seem to end up reading other blogs while searching for maintenance solutions, suppliers and other bits and bobs.
    I should be sailing,

    1. Hi Trevor - thanks for popping by and your email. I've added you to the list. I can completely relate to being "diverted" by other blogs when I should be working on more productive activities :-)

  21. Great list of sailing blogs!!!! Please add dainyrays.blogspot.com to your list for s/v Rainy Days. Also, please correct your listing for Violet Blue to Violet Hour. Thanks!


    1. Thanks for letting me know about Violet Hour - I've updated that and added you to the list :-)

  22. You guys linked to us!! Now we feel like we're grown-up bloggers :) Instead of just having two readers (Wife and I) LOL. Thank you! You guys are awesome!

    1. We're happy to have you on the list! You've got a great blog :-)

  23. WOW I am blown away by how many people have embraced the cruising lifestyle.
    My partner and I are on the countdown before we two will join you all on the water. We have given our notices at work, have been saving......saving.....saving. Looking to sell the house in a month or two then go on the hunt for our new home on the water. I am like a kid at xmas reading everyone's blogs!

    1. You're at such an exciting time in your journey - downsizing, giving your notice and looking for your next home on the water. It's so much fun to read sailing blogs at this stage. If you guys start a sailing blog, let me know and we can add it to the list :-)

  24. Thank you so much for having SailingChiron.com on your list. We've just finished one adventurous chapter and we're on to writing a totally new book!
    I appreciate being included on your blog list!

  25. Wow, what a list! You can also include "Sailing La Vagabond". They are the most popular on YouTube.

    1. I didn't realize the La Vagabond also had a blog. For some reason, I thought they just did vlogging. I'll have to look into it - thanks for flagging up that they blog too.

  26. Interesting article about how these sailors create an income for themselves today - http://royaltyyachts.blogspot.co.za/2017/03/can-i-make-living-from-sailing.html

  27. Wow, this is an awesome list! Would be honoured if you could include us (sailraptor.blogspot.com) too. Thank you! S/V Raptor

  28. Hello! Great post - I'm reading only a few of those so have loads to check out. My blog's ongwen.wordpress.com - 3 and a half years renovation and 1 and a half years sailing on a ferro gaffer from the perspective of someone who knows (or knew, I'm getting there) next to nothing about either. Cheers!

    1. Hi Tricia - thanks for popping by. I've added your blog to the list and look forward to checking it out :-)

  29. Great post, I hadn't found all the blogs you've listed, that's great. Sailing blogs are the best, they are just inspiration to be out on the water. This past spring I started a sailing blog about sailing around the west coast of BC. I'd love it if you'd check out my blog and consider adding it to your list!

    Tara http://www.coastapus.com/

    1. Hi Tara - I've added your blog to the list. It looks like you're a great cook. I showed my hubby the picture of your crab stuffed avocado and now I think he wants me to make it for him :-)

  30. Wow! That's a LOT of sailing blogs. Thanks for the add. I follow some of these but I'll be checking out more! x

    1. There sure are a lot of them out there! Happy to have you on the list :-)

  31. I am a beginner and thankful for such a great list. I will check them out! Thanks.

  32. Great list of blogs, I knew about some of them but not all, I'll be checking these out. Thanks for including my blog on your list. Sailing is such a great sport, it's so awesome to see all the blogs and an interest in sailing! Great post.


  33. Such a nice post on Sailing. I am also beginner here. I will check all list of blogs that you have mentioned in your post. Now I will try to write an blog on Sailing. Thanks once again :)

  34. Always wanted a day out which is full of adventure and fun. It was a great experience traveling to Goa. Thanks to the organizers of the trip. They made my day full of adventure with watersports activities. http://bit.ly/2q6OZB1

  36. Hi,

    We have recently started our sailing adventure in the Mediterranean which we are recording in a blog. This is directed at family and friends mostly but we aim to cover practical sailing and admin issues as part of it which may be of interest to others.
    We would be pleased if you include our blog in your list, which is an excellent resource.

    Best wishes



  37. :) Hello Cynical Sailor! I love this list, there's some fantastic content here! If you're still updating this, we'd love for you to list us over at Seattle Sailing as well! Check out our blog and see if you like the content!

  38. I really enjoy your website! I recently started a sailing blog myself, www.adventuresofguppy.com, and I’d love to be added to your list. It is a work in progress, but I hope you enjoy. 💙

  39. Hi there,
    We are a family of 5; 3 daughters (5,6 and 8) and are embarking on a years sailing adventure from Greece to the Caribbean. I am really keen to read blogs which are appropriate to us, ie, young families sailing through the Med and across the Atlantic. I would be very grateful if you I point me in the direction of those bloggers!! Thank you!

  40. We were just searching this morning for a few new sailing blogs. We love hearing about other people’s adventures and how other cruisers go about life. Here’s a link to our blog.
