Sailing Snowbird

In December last year I posted asking for advice on single handed sailing.

Well 6 months later, despite 3 months of lockdown I have documented it all in a facebook blog.

You don't need to sell your soul to facebook to read it, just click Not now if asked to log in.

If you scroll to the bottom and read the posts upwards then they are in chronological order.

I'd very much appreciate constructive feedback on my writing style, post style, from any experienced writers out there!

I know it's not climbing but it is a break from the bug that's going around.

If you are on facebook and want to like or follow then that would be great.

Cheers.

That was fantastic- lost myself in it for a while. There's just something about boats that never fails to inspire.

Well done, living the dream. If it weren't for lockdown I'd offer to come and crew.

Only comment would be to add a bit of structure to each post:

Title
Short Summary

3 paragraphs

Conclusion

And maybe cross-post to a blogging platform/newsletter so those allergic to FB can follow. (I suggest Substack, really easy to use as a writer and follower)

Thanks, I have been toying with the idea of cross blogging to something like wordpress but it's a bit clunky on my phone, I'll have a look at Substack though.

Thank you

I just love boats, Sitting on a boat in the evening is one of life's great pleasures.
