SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISER’S NET GOES LIVE!!!!
Go to: http://www.CruisingGuide.com
Then, click on the “Cruiser’s Net” button along the left side of our home page
Watermark Publishing is proud to announce the genesis of what may turn out to be the most important new service to the Southeastern USA cruising community for many a year. And, best of all, it’s FREE, with nothing to subscribe to or join!
As those of you who have been on the Salty Southeast mailing list already know, we have been soliciting cruising news for a new “Salty Southeast Cruiser’s Net.” By this means, the cruising community can exchange information in real time about what’s changed, new, different, alarming or just plain exciting, on ALL the coastal waters from North Carolina to New Orleans.
We have already received a wonderful selection of cruising news, ranging from changes in channels and aids to navigation, to marinas that might be charging a wee bit too much for their dockage. And, what’s really great, is that all this info is brought to you by those who know it best, namely, your fellow cruisers who have just traversed the waters you will soon be visiting.
Some of this data will be quite IMPORTANT to captains making their way south on the Atlantic ICW, and we urge you to check out the cruiser’s net at your earliest opportunity.
You will find the Salty SE Cruiser’s net divided into “North Carolina,” “South Carolina – Georgia,” “Eastern Florida” (Fernandina Beach to Miami), “Florida Keys,” “Western Florida” (Cape Sable to Carrabelle), “Northern Gulf” and “Bahamas” sub-sections.
Initially, you will find the “North Carolina,” “South Carolina – Georgia,” “Eastern Florida” and “Florida Keys” sections heavy with news. This is to be expected, as we have been hearing from the “snowbirds” as they wend their way south.
Of course, for this concept to work, WE NEED TO CONTINUE RECEIVING A STREAM OF NEWS FROM ALL CRUISERS, not just snowbirds, but also those who live and cruise weekly (or daily) on their home waters.
So, without further ado, we invite one and all to go to http://www.CruisingGuide.com, and click on the “Cruiser’s Net” button along the left side of hour home page.
PLEASE let us know what you think of the new Salty SE Cruiser’s Net, and PLEASE keep that great cruising news coming. We look forward to receiving your e-mails at email@example.com.
Good luck and good cruising!
