A Brief Introduction to High Latitude Outfitting

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!
