A Voyager in need of rescue


Whilst at my local sailing club I couldn't help but notice this poor little Voyager 14 that looks in desperate need of rescue.

The name "blue dragon" did appeal to me and I had seen her out on Rutland Water about 5 years ago but now she is looking rather sad. The cabin is full of water that has leaked through the hatches but at least this proves there are no holes under her water line!

Garmin 401 GPS review

Having owned the Garmin foretrex 401 GPS for a year now I have decided to write a brief review.

Firstly I don't use this just for sailing, so far my waterproof wrist mounted companion has been kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, running, cycling and even on a canal boat. Indeed versatility and portability is my favorite feature of the GPS.
