It's Boat Show Season in North America and if you are anywhere close enough you can meet with the 'Distant Shores' crew. Sheryl Shard says: This is one of our favourite times of the year. You can check out the latest developments in boating gear, clothing and equipment; look at new boats, attend seminars, plan new adventures and dream... If there's snow, forget all about it at a boat show!

Here's the boat shows Paul and I will be making appearances at and the times and topics of the cruising seminars we'll be conducting over the next couple of weeks. Then it's back to the Caribbean on February 2nd for more sailing in the tropics this winter!

Tech Blog – Getting Out There!
Last week Paul and I participated in our First Google Hangout, a free webinar entitled 'A Night with the Experts', where Paul and I joined Sail Magazine Contributing Editor, Wally Moran, plus special guests, authors Lin and Larry Pardy, Liza Copeland, Pamela Bendall and Tania Aebi for 90 minutes of answering questions about cruising. It's still online hereif you missed it and would like to check it out.
