S.V. Horizon's Links

Updated September 2003.

Other boater's home pages

Rafiki Owners - I may be biased but I think any web site devoted to Rafiki sailboats can't be all bad! Note: The site has been down a while. It may be dead unfortunately.

Driftwood Too - Our dock neighbors. They're power boaters, but we don't hold that against them. Claudia sure has a great web site!

Utopia - We met Jack and Sandy on the ham radio about a year before we met them in person in Panama. Now they have a house about 30 miles from us.

Cruise the Sea of Cortez - This is a great site with very useful information about cruising the Sea of Cortez and lots of nautical related links.

FREE nautical charts - Wanted to try electronic charting but don't have the money? You can download free charts and chart readers direct from this NOAA site.

Interesting marine sites

Latitude 38 - The best sailing magazine, especially for those of us who have sailed San Fransisco Bay. While cruising, we would haunt the air waves looking for boats with recent copies of this great magazine to keep up with sailing events and news of our cruising friends and locations.

Seven Seas Cruising Association - This organization is the only one we maintained membership in while we were cruising. Their web site is not doing much yet but they have a great monthly bulletin with lots of good information.

Peter Bennett's FTP Directory - This site has lots of marine related freeware and other navigation and GPS technical information. This is also one of the download sites for our free WXTide32 program.

The Royal Institute of Navigation - A collection of DOS and Windows software for various celestial, tidal, weather, navigational, etc. purposes.

Coastline Extractor - See what coastlines anywhere in the world look like at resolutions down to 50 Meters!
