A Brief Introduction to High Latitude Outfitting

Sailing-the-NW-Passage-Nov-2015
To accompany last month’s blog on tips for sailing south for the winter, here are some tips from www.bwsailing.com on prepping for an ocean or around-the-world voyage, including traversing the world’s more northern passages.

“Preparing a boat for an ocean voyage is a big process, and it requires even more effort and planning if you intend to cruise the world’s higher latitudes.” — Blue Water Sailing’s blog,  “A Brief Introduction to High Latitude Outfitting,” November 19, 2015

As with any voyage, long or short, ocean-going or lake powerboating, don’t forget to bring an extra Globe Marine Run-dry® Impeller. Don’t get stuck out there without one!
