BLUE WATER SAILING MEDIA
BLUE WATER SAILING, CRUISING COMPASS & MULTIHULLS QUARTERLY
Welcome to Blue Water Sailing!
Blue Water Sailing is now in its 15th year of publication and reaches readers across North America and in 66 countries. The magazine was founded by circumnavigators George and Rosa Day, who spent five years sailing and cruising their Mason 43 ketch around the world. Blue Water Sailing was designed to offer great sailing stories and real-world solutions for offshore sailors who need to fit out their cruising boats to meet the rigors of the ocean. In every issue, you will find authoritative articles written by known experts covering everything from sail related gear to the navigator’s table to the art of cruising.
And, every week, we publish the e-newsletter Cruising Compass, which is your weekly fix of cruising news, technical advice, sailing resources and fun events. BWS’s sister publication, MQ, has launched a blog for multihull enthusiasts to talk about everything from the America’s Cup, wing masts and asymmetrical daggerboards to the best gear for cruising. Plus, check out our newest venture, NE Mountain Sports, which offers destination features, snow reports, trail conditions and travel planning for active Northeasterners who love to ski, snowboard, bike, climb, hike, kayak and camp.
